Lee County Public School’s interim superintendent Michael Brickey has confirmed that he resigned earlier this week. Brickey told News Channel 11 that he mailed in his notice on Wednesday morning.

Brickey said, “I just had some disagreements with some of the things that the school board was doing or not doing and I just had the problem of not having any support from the school board.”

Regarding the future of Lee County Schools Brickey said, “I’d recommend that the school board go to some training on the protocol between the superintendent and the school board and the function of each group.”

Brickey said after 40 years of working in education, he looks forward to going back into retirement.

Lee County School Board member Ty Harber stated that Lee County is currently in the process of searching for a new superintendent.
