Voters in a north-central Kansas school district recalled a school board member over a confrontation with a former school principal.

By a vote of 524-284, voters on Tuesday recalled Plainville School Board member Darlene Jones, who served for 33 years.

The recall petition accused Jones of verbally assaulting and committing battery on former Plainville High School principal Troy Keiswetter during a confrontation at the high school.

Recall organizers said such confrontations should not be allowed on school grounds.

Jones denied the claims. Keiswatter left Plainville to work at McClouth High School.
