   The Grand Center Arts Academy won't hire a controversial Clayton principal.  But they won't keep their current principal either, despite protests by parents and students.  On Thursday, school officials reaffirmed their decision not to renew principal Lynne Glickert’s contract.  

   Glickert says she still doesn't know why she's being let go. Last week she thought she was meeting for her first performance review since the school opened in 2010. Instead, she was told her current contract would not be renewed, even though she just signed a new one in May.  "You just think things are fine if no one's telling you there are concerns," Glickert said.  "So it was a shock, a real shock."

   School officials did change their mind about hiring former Clayton High School principal Dr. Louise Losos.  Losos left Clayton High after allegations that she'd created a fake Facebook account to monitor students.  

   The board plans to conduct a national search for a new principal.
