Barnum Elementary School principal put on paid leave

Barnum Elementary School principal Tom Cawcutt has been put on paid administrative leave following a Monday emergency School Board meeting.

Superintendent David Bottem told the News Tribune on Tuesday that a complaint had been filed against Cawcutt and was being investigated, although he wouldn’t disclose the nature of the complaint.

Cawcutt has been principal of the school for 10 years. Scott Anderson, most recently an administrator for Willow River schools, will serve as principal in the interim.
