The principal of a Bronx high school, where a student was fatally stabbed in late-September, has been removed, the city education department announced Saturday.
The education department said Astrid Jacobo has been reassigned to the Bronx Field Support Center.
In a statement, Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina said, "After a careful review, I have decided to select a new principal to lead the school and ensure an inclusive learning environment for all students. I've visited Wildlife several times, meeting with staff and families, and will continue to closely monitor and support the community."
Matthew McCree, 15, was killed Sept. 27 after a classmate stabbed him at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation. Another student was stabbed and critically injured in the attack, police said.
Abel Cedeno, 18, was indicted on manslaughter charges, accused of killing McCree and stabbing the other classmate. Cedeno's lawyers have said he was a victim of bullying.
McCree's family filed a $25 million lawsuit against the school, saying it did not have metal detectors.
