Reports: CMS Superintendent Morrison To Resign

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools

There are multiple reports that CMS superintendent Heath Morrison is going to resign.

WFAE's Lisa Worf spoke to Mark Rumsey during All Things Considered from CMS headquarters, where reporters are waiting on CMS officials to release a formal statement. Here's their conversation:

WFAE has spoken to several school board members.  They said they couldn’t comment on the situation, but they didn’t seem to be caught off guard.

School board member Ericka Ellis said she won’t say anything until Morrison makes a statement of his own.

Morrison came to CMS in 2012 from Reno, Nevada.  That year he was named national Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators.

Morrison is in the third year of a four-year contract that pays $288,000 a year, not including bonuses.
