North Syracuse Superintendent Resigns

The leader of one of Onondaga County's largest school districts has resigned today, after a rocky two years with the district.

The North Syracuse Board of Education voted 9-0 late Friday morning to accept the resignation of Dr. Kim Dyce-Faucette after two years at the helm of the district.

They've agreed to buy out the final year of her contract too. The superintendent was earning 182 thousand dollars a year. She had a three year contract with the district, but the school board is not releasing specific details of her buyout.

Dyce-Faucette's resignation comes after district voters this year rejected the superintendents school budget and the superintendent was involved in other controversies which included the firing of the district's popular softball coach and the recent suspension of a student who spoke out on social media about the recent school budget.

There was also a controversy over the casting of the high school musical "The Wiz" in which no African- American students had a part in the performance. Some of the controversies made headlines across the country.

The Board of Education has now appointed Assistant Superintendent Annette Speach as the interim superintendent.
