Former Marion County Superintendent Donald Smith has released the following statement regarding his resignation:
This evening the Board and I reached a mutual agreement to terminate our Contract employing me as the Superintendent of Marion County Schools, effective this evening. It is with deep regret that I have made this decision. I have greatly appreciated the opportunity that was granted to me, by both the previous Marion County Board of Education and the current Board to serve the children of Marion County. Marion County has a very good school system; Marion County is a very good community.
I have enjoyed working with the children of Marion County and the people of Marion County. However, I have an opportunity for a career advancement that I intend to pursue and this will not permit me to serve as Marion County Superintendent.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the past and current Board, the children of Marion County and the citizens of Marion County for the opportunity to serve you.
