— A Wake County principal has been suspended and is seeking a transfer, officials said Monday.

Knightdale Elementary School Principal Michael Williams was suspended with pay on July 14. Officials wouldn't disclose the reason for the suspension.

Williams has been principal at Knightdale Elementary since last fall and served as interim principal for a year before that. He has worked with the Wake County school system since 1999.

He has asked for a transfer to a new position, and the school board is expected to discuss that request Tuesday in a closed session.

Williams couldn't be reached for comment Monday.
