JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) -- James Sexton won't be a principal any longer in the Greater Clark County Schools. The school board voted 4-2, with one abstention, to not renew.

He could still receive a teaching position if he's eligible because he has a teaching contract.

Sexton was reassigned from Jeffersonville High several weeks ago and took over at Clark County Middle-High School, an alternative school. He won't return for the 2013-2014 school year.

Superintendent Dr. Andrew Melin, who's only been on the job for a few months said there were philosophical differences between the two and said Sexton disobeyed directives.

Sexton is popular among some students and parents. He called the decision unfortunate and expected and believes it's a political response to being a holdover from former Superintendent Dr. Stephen Daeschner's administration.
