Cheatham County schools director resigns

Posted: Updated:
ASHLAND CITY, TN (WSMV) -

The Cheatham County schools director abruptly resigned Monday night, and now an emergency meeting has been scheduled to discuss the future of the school district.

Tim Webb, the former state education commissioner, has led the district since 2010.

He announced his resignation during the school board meeting Monday evening.  He didn't indicate why he was leaving or what he plans to do in the future.

Some board members did not accept his resignation.  Webb must give a 90-day notice to resign.

In April he announced the school district would need $45 million to get through the next fiscal year and 18 teaching positions would have to be cut to close the gap.

The school board will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The Giles County director of schools said that Webb has taken a position as the principal of Richland High School.
