PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. (AP) - A Prairie du Chien School District principal has been reprimanded and suspended without pay for five days after using inappropriate language directed toward students.

District administrator Drew Johnson released results of his investigation into two complaints filed by parents on Wednesday. The complaints said Bluff View Intermediate School Principal Aaron Amundson called a group of boys “idiots” and used the word “kill” to express frustration with students for not properly following directions. Both complaints said the remarks were made on the last day of school in December.

Amundson has since apologized and admitted to using unprofessional language.

Johnson says Amundson’s contract will be terminated or not renewed if there are any further problems with inappropriate communication.

Johnson says the principal also was reprimanded in March 2013 after sending an inappropriate email to staff.
