Superintendent to resign from North Carolina school system

July 19, 2019

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Officials for North Carolina’s second largest school system say the superintendent will resign next month after two years on the job.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools announced Friday that Clayton Wilcox will step down on Aug. 2. The announcement followed a special meeting which included a closed-door session to discuss an agreement.

The Charlotte Observer reports that a draft of the agreement, released by the school system, said Wilcox would get no compensation in exchange for his resignation and that the system would not publicly release information in his personnel file. Under North Carolina law, dismissals, demotions or suspensions of government employees are considered public information.

The school board suspended Wilcox for unspecified reasons on Monday. His resignation means Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will be looking for its sixth superintendent in the past 10 years.
