A former Cambridge principal who was fired and rehired will be spending at least the next five years with the school system. The Cambridge School District dismissed Principal Bill Lee in 2001 for reportedly slapping a child and calling him a foul name. In 2002, Guernsey County Common Pleas Judge David Ellwood ordered that the Board should not have fired Lee and that he should be rehired. Ever since that ruling, lawyers for both sides have been negotiating a deal. The School Board recently approved the deal. Lee commented in a phone interview that he now has a five year contract with the School District. He is expected to spend those five years working with special education students and on the District's curriculum. Lee says at the end of those five years he is eligible for retirement.
