CONCORD - An elementary school principal is not facing charges on allegations that he used too much physical contact with a student during a disciplinary action.
However, John Forrest is still on leave from Beaver Meadow Elementary School in Concord.
After an investigation, Concord police said no charges will be filed.
The alleged incident happened during the week of April 6.
Concord detectives interviewed staff at school and found the allegations not to be at a level for "a charge."
The city attorney also weighed in and agreed with the police conclusion.
But Forrest is not back in school, yet.
Concord School District Superintendent Chris Rath released a statement Friday: "Mr. Forrest will remain on paid administrative leave. We have not concluded our investigation, we are hoping to conclude within two weeks."
