CCS Chief To Retire

Sep 20, 2012

A Columbus City Schools source tells WCBE superintendent Gene Harris will announce her retirement this afternoon.

The announcement is scheduled to take place at the King Arts Complex. The source spoke on condition of anonymity. District higher-ups have been expecting the announcement for months. It comes amid the district's attendance data-fixing scandal and continued fighting between the administration and the school board. The source says the resignation will take effect at the end of the school year.
