Harrisville Superintendent Resigns
Harrisville Central School Superintendent Rolf Waters has resigned amid controversy.
The school board called a special meeting Thursday night.
After meeting behind closed doors, the board announced Waters resignation.
"By mutual agreement, we have agreed to actually sever our relationship that we've had for ten years. It's not necessarily an easy decision, but it was the appropriate decision," said board President Jan Mosher.
Controversy surrounding Waters first began when he was arrested for driving while intoxicated in 2009.
Then, parents say another scandal erupted when pictures circulated of Waters at a fraternity party.
Some parents say it's about time Waters resigned and they're just surprised it didn't happen sooner.
The school board said the resignation goes into effect on June 30.
Until then, high school Principal Robert Finster will serve as acting superintendent.
