CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The superintendent of the Concord School District has resigned amid criticism of the district’s handling of allegations of sexual misconduct by a former teacher.

Terri Forsten was placed on administrative leave in September. The school board accepted her resignation at a special meeting on Friday night.

In a letter to the public, two school board members wrote Forsten acknowledges “stepping aside will allow the District to begin the process of regaining the community’s trust.”

The board plans to hire Franklyn Bass of Manchester as interim superintendent.
