Transferred Ramsay High Principal gets legal team in effort to reverse decision

Posted: Updated:

Dr. Evelyn Nettles, the former principal of Ramsay High School in Birmingham, now has two attorneys in her efforts to get reinstated at the school.

ABC 33/40 has learned Nettles is being represented by local attorney Candis McGowan and State Representative Juandalynn Givan, D-Birmingham, who is also an attorney.

Givan says the team has met with school leaders, and it plans to meet with leaders with the Alabama Department of EducaEducationan hopes to keep Nettles at Ramsay. The Birmingham School Board voted Tuesday to move Nettles to Kennedy Alternative School for the upcoming school year.

Givan insists that decision and its timing were a "miscarriage of justice."

In a statement to ABC 33/40, Givan says, in part, "it is very unfortunate what is going on. But we will fight as long as we can."

Givan would not elaborate on what the legal team plans to do but she contends it is planning next steps.

Some students, parents and state leaders have voiced support in keeping Nettles at Ramsay. A planned student protest was thwarted Friday after school leaders heard about it. Nearly 100 students walked out of the school Wednesday and protested outside of the Birmingham Board of Education building.

School Board President Randall Woodfin tells reporter Marissa Mitchell there are a total of 11 principal and assistant principal changes made for next school year. He adds more changes are on the way.
