A rally planned Friday in support of a popular Puyallup principal who’s on paid leave pending the outcome of a district investigation has been cancelled.
Hundreds of people were expected to attend the 2:30 p.m. demonstration at the district office in support of Rogers High School Principal Scott Brittain.
But Lauren Parris, an organizer, said Thursday night that Brittain sent a request through a family member that it be called off.
The 51-year-old has been on paid leave since April 6. The district said this week that it’s investigating why he accompanied the school choir to San Francisco earlier this month and taught a zero-hour chemistry class when he was told not to.
Brittain’s attorney said whether he was told not to is in dispute.
Brittain has been principal of Rogers since 2002. His salary is $119,500.
