EL PASO (KTSM) — The El Paso ISD Board of Managers came down with a decision on former Austin High School principal Dr. John Tanner.
On Tuesday night, the board decided to fire him and the Assistant Principal Diane Thomas. This comes after the district placed him on leave in August for a personnel matter.
Tanner faced termination for his alleged involvement in the district-wide cheating scandal earlier this year, but was cleared of any wrongdoing.
