The Roswell Independent School District Board of Education has released an official statement regarding the resignation of former Superintendent Ann Lynn McIlroy.
The five board members voted unanimously Tuesday night to accept her resignation and to appoint former superintendent Mike Gottlieb as acting superintendent.
This is the board statement in its entirety:
“RISD Superintendent Ann Lynn McIlroy has announced her resignation from RISD. Citing a desire to pursue other professional interests, McIlroy entered an agreement with the RISD Board of Education pursuant to which the Board will appoint an acting superintendent who shall oversee the District until June 30, 2020, the effective date of McIlroy’s retirement. From Jan. 14, 2020 until that date, McIlroy will remain on paid administrative leave. McIlroy’s contract was scheduled to last until June 30, 2020.
“The Board will assign an acting superintendent to oversee the District between now and June 30, 2020, and McIlroy will work with the Board and the acting superintendent to ensure a smooth transition and that all District services continue without disruption.
“The Board is grateful for the service Dr. McIlroy gave to the district, and we wish her well in her future endeavors.”
