AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Glenn Hills High School principal will receive ten days without pay along with another letter of reprimand into his personnel file after past incidents.

Dr. Wayne Frazier was given three letters from the Richmond County Board of Education in relation to his negligence in the missing funds for the school, his DUI charge and the "Jail Report" that was printed in the school's yearbook.

Dr. Frazier was given a letter of advisement in regard to his misdemeanor DUI arrest on May 20, 2010. The letter of advisement is signed by Dr. Dana Bedden, but will not be placed in Dr. Frazier's permanent personnel file, according to the document.

The high school principal was also given a letter regarding the $14,417.62 that was unaccounted for at Glenn Hills High School. The document states Ms. Bridgette Thompkins, the bookkeeper denied wrongdoing, but she couldn't explain the missing funds. Ms. Thompkins resigned from her position, made restitution in the amount unaccounted for and agreed not to apply for another job, the report said.

Because the issue is a very serious act of omission and neglect on Dr. Frazier's part, the school system recommended him to be suspended for 10 days without pay.

Dr. Frazier was also given a letter of reprimand that was inserted in his personnel file for letting "The Jail Report" be published in the school yearbook.

    I agree with the alcohol counseling thing, Dr. Frazier should see this as an opportunity to take time out from the sauce, as driving drunk can get you killed or maimed as well as busted. That being said, I think this place is too full of folks with nothing better to do than play judge to other poeple's problems and race politics. Here's a thought, the guy's a good educator, quite a bit above average as far as RC is concerned, he has a pretty good track record; quite a few folks have had problems with alcohol, most get over them. Unless you're life is pure as the driven snow and you are a paragon of perfection, TEND TO YOUR OWN PROBLEMS. This being said by a white male taxpayer.

    Is this really the person young people need as their leader? Check the Georgia Code of Ethics for Educators--DUI falls under moral turpitude. It's not about taking someone's livelihood--it's about doing what is in the best interest of the students and the school system. With this many problems, personal and professional, this is a person who is clearly not on top of his game. When did it become acceptable for people with serious ethical and moral issues to lead our schools and children? If school systems don't start dealing with these issues and the people who give education a bad name, things are only going to get worse.

    To those of you who are saying " If it was a teacher...".obviously, you have never been employed in RCBOE sysstem, there ARE teachers with DUIs and more. I hate it when people show their ignorance...check your facts, arrest records are accessible by the public, but I guess if you don't see it in the media you wouldn't know. I ALWAYS think before I speak and I don't comment on something I don't know the facts about and make myself look like an ASSuming fool!!!

    I wonder what happens when a teacher does the same? A great example for someone who is suppose to set an example for our children. Way to go, Richmond county. Another example of why we have so many drops outs.

    i would strongly recommend examination of the root problem. Namely, the good doctor should be made (mandated) to seek counseling as there is obviously an alcohol issue here. Admonish in love. Don't take away a person's livelihood in this economy if at all possible; however there are enough memorials and crosses on the roadways where people were killed either by drunk drivers or for driving drunk to justify our educators to lead by example as well as anyone in leadership. God, how I long for Prohibition. Take care everyone. Ultimately, Dr. Frazier is a caring educator however IMHO the alcohol issue needs to be addressed .
