GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) - A high school principal in western Iowa says he has resigned because of a decline in personal health and a failure to meet goals.

Shane Stephens, hired in April 2013 to lead Glenwood Community High School, announced the resignation during a recent district board meeting. Superintendent Devin Embray says he will work through the end of the school year.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1f2cek0 ) Stephens’ departure marks the second principal to resign from the school in less than a year. Kerry Newman resigned after reaching an agreement with the Glenwood Community School District.

The board questioned allegations that Newman had an inappropriate relationship with a district employee. She denied the allegations.

The district has begun searching for a new principal. Officials hope to find someone by the end of April.
