The principal of Spain Elementary and Middle School is expected to be arraigned today.

Ronald Alexander is facing bribery charges.

He's one of 13 Detroit Public Schools employees accused of accepting kickbacks in exchange for using a school supply vendor.

Alexander appeared on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" via satellite back in February.

During the segment, Ellen announced she was donating $500,000 to Spain.

The midtown school is expected to use part of the money to improve its gym.
