CLAYTON — A suburban St. Louis principal will get $140,000 from the district after resigning over a social media scandal.

The Clayton School District has not said what specifically prompted the departure of high school principal Louise Losos on Friday other than citing a "fundamental dispute concerning the appropriate use of social media."

Losos will continue to be paid through the end of the school year, and will receive a lump sum payment of $140,000 on July 1. In return, she agreed to take no legal action against the district.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday that Losos' resignation came after a former quarterback at Clayton High School alleged on Facebook that the principal had created a false Facebook identity that had many friends who were students at the school.
