APS Principal resigns after investigation into drugs at school, inappropriate relationships

Posted: Updated:

Young Middle School principal Kelvin Griffin resigned following an Atlanta Public Schools internal investigation.

The investigation found Griffin had affairs with a teacher and a volunteer parent. The report mentions an incident where the teacher and Griffin were in a locked room and did not respond when another teacher knocked. School video captured them checking if anyone was in the hall before exiting the room.

The investigation also found he allowed the janitor, Matthew Mullins,  to continue working for the school without investigating rumors he was selling drugs to the sixth graders.

An Atlanta Police report shows Mulls was arrested for having marijuana in the school parking lot of January of last year.

A teacher filed a complaint last spring. School investigators conducted the investigation this school year.

Parents received automated phone calls and letters notifying them Griffin was gone. Christopher Reid, parent, said he received a call Monday about the change, but the school system was silent on the investigation.

Reid and several parents CBS 46 spoke with said their biggest concern was their children's safety.

"It's hard enough raising a child in this society, but for an adult to do that at this school. It's unjustified, we weren't notified about it," said Reid.

The school system would only say Griffin resigned. CBS 46 made repeated attempts to reach Griffin, but was unable to do so.
