CONRAD – Conrad Public Schools Superintendent Sharyl Allen submitted a letter of resignation to the school board Tuesday night.
Allen has served as the superintendent for three years and introduced a personalized learning program to the high school during the 2017-2018 school year.
When MTN spoke with Allen about the program, she described it as a “one size fits all” learning program that encourages students to work independently. She also said it would help students prepare for college.
A few months after incorporating the program, Allen received backlash from some parents at a school board meeting. The parents argued the program wasn’t working.
At Tuesday night’s school board meeting, members accepted Allen’s letter of resignation. She will complete the school year and the resignation will take place at the end of June.
In Conrad, superintendents are hired by the school board and the search for a replacement will soon begin.
