Superintendent Blane McCann said it was simply time to move forward in announcing his decision to retire in the summer, but some in the community believed there was more going on behind the scenes, and accusations surfaced publicly at a School Board meeting on Jan. 11.
A crowd of 50 passionately asked McCann reconsider or blamed board members for either not doing enough to retain him or forcing him to retire.
Board members contended it was McCann's choice alone to retire.
