CMS Deputy Superintendent Addresses Concerns, Questions After Morrison's Departure

Ann Clark

The Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools board has come under heavy criticism for the way it's handled the departure of former Superintendent Heath Morrison. The board hasn't addressed the specific reasons it wanted Morrison to leave. Much of the information we do have comes from an internal report leaked to the Charlotte Observer. Acting Superintendent Ann Clark joined Charlotte Talks host Mike Collins to discuss these concerns and her goals moving forward. 

"I think he positioned us well with an amazing strategic plan and that plan set some high expectations in terms of student achievement and staff participation toward that end. So I think his leadership legacy is certainly one of providing us with a road map of how we move forward," stated Clark.
