SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The Caddo Parish School Board announced that Dr. Stacey Russell, former Booker T. Washington principal, has resigned.

The school board says it's a "personal issue, we are not at liberty to release any farther details regarding her reasons for resigning."

Earlier this year, an audit conducted by the Louisiana Department of Education and the school district revealed that ten students received diplomas in the 2013-2014 school year but didn't meet the required credit to graduate.

Shortly after allegations of the grade changes were confirmed, Caddo Parish Schools Superintendent Dr. Lamar Goree announced that BTW principal Dr. Stacey Russell had been placed on administrative leave. Goree did not specify whether the suspension was a direct result of the grade changing allegations.
