    A San Francisco school principal will appear in court this morning over drunk driving charges.

    Sheila Sammon Milosky is expected to be arraigned Tuesday on misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run charges.  She was arrested May 12 after driving on U.S. Highway 101 near the Golden Gate Bridge.    Investigators say she allegedly struck two cars and tried to drive away.    When police arrested her, they said she had a blood alcohol level above th elegal limit of .08.

    Milosky is the head principal at Paul Revere School in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighborhood.  

    And she drew the ire from parents over what they believe are unfair regulations for the kindergarten through eighth graders on campus, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.  

     Low-income family advocates held rallies against her over her rules including demerits handed out for taking bathroom breaks, and for not allowing parents to take part in school functions.

     The group says the moves were part of an agenda to get rid of low performing students to attend other schools, so test scores could improve. 

    The school district  is backing Milosky.  District officials say they have thoroughly investigated complaints against the second-year principal and found them unsubstantiated.
