Jeffersonville H.S. interim-principal retires amid misconduct allegation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man appointed to temporarily replace the principal of Jeffersonville High School has himself taken early retirement amid allegations of misconduct.

A spokesperson for Greater Clark County Schools confirms that Jeffersonville High School Interim-Principal David Milburn submitted his resignation on Friday.

Milburn, who was being investigated for allegations of misconduct, had been employed with the school system for 22 years, and was eligible for early retirement. His resignation effectively ends the investigation.

The school board is expected to vote Tuesday night on whether to accept his resignation.

Milburn was appointed to the role of Interim-Principal last month, after then-Jeffersonville High School Principal Jim Sexton was reassigned to be principal of Clark County Middle/High School.

Sexton was briefly placed on paid administrative leave prior to the reassignment, while an investigation into his activities took place.

At the time, Superintendent Dr. Andrew Melin said, "Placing Mr. Sexton on paid administrative leave was done to avoid any allegation of undue influence while I investigated management issues at Jeffersonville High School. There were no concerns related to illegal activities."
