Statement from the Board and Superintendent

Friday evening, the Board of Education held a meeting, after which they issued a joint statement from the Board and Superintendent:

“Dr. Timothy Gadson asked the Board to accept his resignation from the position of Superintendent of the Salt Lake City School District, effective October 1st, citing personal reasons. While the Board agreed to accept his resignation, it has asked Dr. Gadson to remain on in the capacity of a consultant through the term of his contract, and Dr. Gadson has agreed to do so. He will be taking personal time next week while the parties finalize their agreement. Notwithstanding public speculation to the contrary, there has been no finding of any wrongdoing on the part of Dr. Gadson and no violation of law by either Dr. Gadson or the Salt Lake City School Board.”
