ROSEDALE, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi Delta school district that fired its superintendent has now put its interim leader on leave.

The Bolivar Commercial reports that the West Bolivar school board on Friday took the action against interim superintendent Larry Walker, previously the deputy superintendent. Board members are naming another man, Charles Baron, as the new interim superintendent.

Board President Evereth Stanton says the district’s curriculum coordinator has also been placed on leave.

Former Superintendent James Waldington-Johnson was abruptly fired in April after he proposed moving West Bolivar High School in Rosedale from its current building into the current middle school building.

Board members say they will meet with applicants for the permanent superintendent’s job this week.
