CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOV) -- Clayton High School principal Dr. Louise Losos resigned Saturday, following a leave of absence and accusations that she set up a fake Facebook profile to spy on students.

According to a statement from the school district, the "administration and Losos had a fundamental dispute concerning the appropriate use of social media."

Students at the school say they began receiving friend requests from a woman named Suzy Harriston. The account gained several hundred friends, until a former student began telling others that Suzy Harriston was not a real person, but a fake profile created by Losos.

The account then reportedly disappeared, and Losos began a leave of absence from the school.
 
Losos has been principal at Clayton High School since 2005. Her resignation is effective June 30.

Dan Gutchewsky has been appointed Interim Principal of Clayton High School through the end of the 2012-2013 school year.  Dr. Gutchewsky most recently served as the school’s Associate Principal.
