CHARLOTTE, N.C.- In a bombshell announcement Friday morning, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board said suspended CMS Superintendent Dr. Clayton Wilcox will resign, just two years after being brought to Charlotte to lead the district.
The CMS board met Friday morning to decide the future of Wilcox, agreeing unanimously that he will resign. A separation agreement was approved by a 9-0 vote, saying Wilcox will resign Aug. 2, just weeks before the new school year begins.
He will not be paid in exchange for his resignation.
It's been a chaotic week for the school system after the board voted to suspend Wilcox over several reported violations of state law and board policies.
