Lauderdale County School System Superintendent Jon Hatton did not want to comment Wednesday on why several teachers and staff members abruptly resigned two weeks ago.

Some resignations happened in a regularly scheduled meeting and others happened two days later at a special called board of education meeting on Nov. 22.

Wednesday, the board held another regularly scheduled meeting where no new resignations were announced. A long-time teacher did retire.

WAAY31 asked Hatton if the vacancies left by the resignations were filled yet, and he said they don't have any open positions.

We know a majority of the resignations were at Lauderdale County High School. Hatton said he can't say why the staff members resigned because it's a personnel matter.

WAAY31 reached out to the Lauderdale County Sheriff's Office and they said nothing criminal has been reported.
