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.
