    This week, it was reported that Jason Ormsby will not be returning for the 2012-13 school year as principal of Cherokee High School. 

     Mike Rogers, Cherokee Central Schools acting superintendent, said, “Mr. Ormsby’s contract was not renewed by the Cherokee Central Schools Board of Education.  We are now in the process of seeking candidates for the principal position at Cherokee High School.”

     A specific reason was not given by school officials as to why Ormsby’s contract was not renewed.  Cherokee School Board officials declined comment citing it as a personnel issue. 

     Ormsby was suspended earlier this year in the wake of a hazing incident at the school, but was reinstated several weeks later.  He could not be reached for comment.
