Beau Chene High School is now under new leadership after current principal Barbara Roberson was reassigned to the main school board office.

Superintendent Patrick Jenkins says that Roberson's reassignment is only temporary.

Current assistant principal Tiffany Etienne will now serve as interim principal for the remainder of the school year.

Roberson tells KATC that she asked to be reassigned out of concern for her safety and the school's safety.

She's been on leave since August amid protests of alumni and parents who say they have concerns with her leadership.

Roberson says she addressed those concerns with the superintendent last month.
