Investigators are now looking into Airport High School after an administrator’s firing


The Cayce Department of Public Safety says they are now investigating after an assistant principal was fired and the principal was placed on administrative leave at Airport High School on Monday evening.

Details remain limited, but officials at Cayce DPS confirm they are doing their “due diligence” after Assistant Principal Dawn Diimmler was fired by Lexington 2.

Diimmler was fired by the district following a special board meeting Monday night.

Dawn Kujawa, the district’s public information officer, also said Principal Brad Colemancontinues to be on administrative leave.

Kujawa did not elaborate further on the circumstances surrounding Diimmler’s firing.

“Generally, the district can place an employee on administrative leave for any number of reasons,” Kujawa said via email. “I also can tell you that, whenever a certified employee is placed on administrative leave, that leave generally is paid, as required by state law.”
