Immokalee High School’s principal has received his punishment for allowing overage students to play sports. Immokalee High principal Manny Touron won’t get a merit raise, can never coach a public school team in Collier County again and his contract will have to be approved annually…not every few years like other principals. Those are the among the punishments from Collier Assistant Superintendent Eric Williams. Williams says at least three students including one who was 30 played soccer and football at Immokalee High.
“It was a serious failure in terms of not fulfilling his responsibilities as a principal. And so because it was viewed as serious, we wanted the consequences to be serious.”
Touron will also have a written reprimand kept in his file. The school district also wants to know whether other Immokalee High staff members should be disciplined.
