An administrator at Marianna High School is suspended without pay following an allegation that she abused a student.

The Jackson County School Board made the decision to suspend Assistant Principal Sybil Rivers with a 4-1 vote at Tuesday's meeting. Rivers remains under investigation.

The board allowed comments from the public to help them decide whether Rivers should be suspended with or without pay.

Superintendent of Schools Larry Moore recommended the board remove Rivers from her position. Officials say they'll have a public hearing with her and her attorney before they make a decision regarding termination.
