Campbell County High School principal reinstated, DCS tip had ‘no substance,’ attorney says
The Department of Children’s Services was investigating a Campbell County principal, officials said.
JACKSBORO, Tenn. (WVLT) - Campbell County High School Principal Benjamin Foust has been reinstated after briefly being under investigation by the Department of Children’s Services, a representative with the Isaacs Law Firm confirmed to WVLT News Wednesday.
The investigation stemmed from an anonymous phone tip to DCS. That tip has proved to be insubstantial, according to Foust’s legal representatives. DCS officials confirmed to WVLT News that Foust was under investigation, but the school system did not provide a statement.
Campbell County High School Principal Benjamin Foust has been reinstated- effective immediately. Investigations by the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office, in addition to out firm’s independent investigation, determined that there was no substance to the anonymous telephone tip that led to the malicious and false allegations that were intentionally and illegally leaked to numerous media outlets. Principal Foust is extremely pleased to put this behind him and return the Campbell County High School family of students, teachers, and staff.
Foust is now able to return to the school.
