Nate Ellis, The Columbus Dispatch |

A Pickerington Schools principal will be suspended 10 days without pay for political comments she had posted and shared via social media, the district confirmed Dec. 18. In a settlement with the district signed Dec. 7, Ruth Stickel, principal at Fairfield Elementary School, agreed to a suspension of four days in January, four in February and two in March.

The agreement comes after Stickel was accused between March and October of making or sharing several comments deemed inappropriate and that Zack Howard, district administrative officer, said “caused a disruption to the school district.”
