Franklin Co. Superintendent to leave corporation 

Watch here:

(BROOKVILLE, Ind.) – Franklin County Superintendent Tammy Chavis is leaving the school corporation. 


She submitted a separation agreement to the Franklin County School Board on Monday night. 


It led to a lengthy and emotional discussion among school board members. 


“Tammy has put her heart and soul into this corporation and has established relationships with teachers like I have never seen in the 16 years I’ve been on the board,” school board president Francis Brumback tearfully said. 


“Our students will pay the price, but she can be a shining star in another corporation where she doesn’t get beat down every single day,” he added. 


Another school board member, Rick Gill, referenced bullying when it comes to Chavis leaving before her contract concludes. 


“I hate to see anybody bullied out of something that they are doing good. I feel this is something we should stand up for,” Gill said. “I wish you would reconsider and fight this head-on.” 


“That's one of the main reasons I think you’re leaving, and I know some other reasons, personal reasons, and I think the people and public I’ve talked to support you 100 percent,” he added. 


Several school board members praised Chavis for her work within the corporation, which recently included a soaring graduation rate among high school seniors.


Other board members referenced Chavis stepping down for personal reasons. 


The school board unanimously accepted her separation agreement after their discussion.


Chavis now has a 21-day period to rescind the separation agreement, as the school board begins the search for a new superintendent. 


According to the Franklin County Observer, Chavis is willing to stay until December 31 if the school board needs additional time to find a replacement.
