A former Blackwell Elementary Principal now has a new job within the school system, away from students. This, after allegations last April that Daryl Roselle held a fraternity hazing ritual at the school after hours.
Officials have confirmed that Roselle now works in the school system's central office and that a new principal has been assigned to the elementary school.
School officials previously reported they don't have any evidence to support rumors of a hazing incident, but did express concern that the principal had an unauthorized meeting at the school during Spring Break.
Tuesday, the school issued a statement saying: "Richmond Public Schools confirms that Mr. Roselle is no longer housed at Blackwell Elementary School as principal. He has been assigned to other administrative duties for the 2012-2013 school year."
Steven Bolton, a spokesperson for the school division, said he cannot disclose whether Roselle was disciplined for what may have happened inside Blackwell Elementary, but he said his new job is not a promotion and does not include a raise.
Bolton explained that Roselle only received a three percent increase in pay to offset the Virginia Retirement Fund Contributions, as did every school employee.
Many parents we spoke to say removing him from the school was not good enough.
"I think he should be terminated," said father Carlo Black. "Terminated. These are kids. These are the future."
"I think he should have lost his job,' added community member Monte Almond.
Reginald Williams is now listed as the new principal at Blackwell Elementary.
