FARGO-Kathryn Fink of Grand Forks has started a petition to get rid of the principal of Fargo North High School.

It all stems from an incident at Fargo North High School on Feb. 12.

A video that people say shows the fight has started circulating on the web, and now, some are calling into question the administration and how they handled the situation.

Video of a fight first hit the airwaves on KPPP-FM this weekend.

Monday, Feb. 26, the video has prompted a petition to oust the principal of Fargo North, where this reported fight happened.

The petition started by Fink, says Principal Andy Dahlen "displayed complete disdain and negligence" to the victim of the fight.

Petitioners say Dahlen has breached his confidentiality agreement, telling others about the student's IEP, an Individualized Education Program for those who need specialized teaching.

Over 50 people have signed the petition calling for "Dahlen.. and other staff members ... to be held accountable for sharing a student's private information."

Fargo Public Schools confirms two fights happened on Feb. 12, releasing this statement.

Saying, "Two student fights occurred at North High... The students faced disciplinary actions."

Fargo Police wouldn't comment about the case because it involves juveniles.

The department, however, did confirm the case has been passed on to juvenile court.

In the petition, Fink states she would like to take 2,000 signatures to the school board in March.

They declined an on-camera interview, saying they want this time to be private with family.
