Big changes are in store for the East Valley School District after an announcement tonight that Superintendent John Glenewinkel has resigned.
The emergency school board meeting was announced last minute, but that didn't stop district employees and parents from showing up.
Glenewinkel was not at the meeting, but after a short, closed door discussion the board announced his resignation and read a statement saying he had determined he was not "the right person to move the district forward."
Glenewinkel's resignation did not surprise many, but not everyone was happy about it including Rush Gifford.
"I'm really angry, I think this is the wrong way for the district to go," she said after the announcement."
Gifford has four children that attend the East Valley School District and doesn't believe the change in leadership will benefit anyone.
"The biggest thing," Gifford continued, "is that a bond hasn't passed in years."
