Ann Cardon Out At Traverse City Area Public Schools

Ann Cardon is out at Traverse City Area Public Schools. The school board held a special meeting Thursday where it was announced Cardon has resigned. She’d been on the job for a little more than two months after leaving St. Joseph Public Schools. UpNorthLive reports the school board president in Traverse City “announced the mutual agreement and resignation of Superintendent Ann Cardon” following public comment at Thursday’s meeting. It was reported last week board members were at odds with Cardon over school funding and how often the board should meet. They held a special meeting last Friday where nearly 30 people spoke, all of them in favor of Cardon. No action on Cardon was taken by the board at that meeting. The public comments in favor of Cardon continued at this Thursday’s meeting. One Traverse City  trustee has alleged Cardon was being bullied by some members of the board. Cardon just started as superintendent at Traverse City Area Public Schools in August after being chosen unanimously by the school board.
