Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools administrator John Floyd returned to work this week after the district spent more than two weeks investigating “the posting of an inappropriate image.”

CMS spokesman Brian Hacker declined to elaborate on the findings, citing personnel privacy.

WBTV, the Observer’s news partner, reported that students and teachers had seen nude Instagram photos that reportedly were “selfies” taken by Floyd. He was suspended with pay July 9 while the district looked into the allegation; he returned to work Monday.

Floyd, who has worked for CMS since 2003, was principal of Harding High in 2014-15. He was reassigned to work as community support coordinator in a regional office, effective June 30, after showing some of his Harding staff a video of himself talking about a teacher, CMS spokeswoman Renee McCoy said.

CMS did not provide details of that video, but WBTV described it as Floyd threatening a teacher. The station showed brief clips with obscenities bleeped out.
