Dear School Board Members,

Superintendent Warren Drake responded to the resignation Monday evening, and issued the following statement:

I accepted a notice of resignation from Deputy Superintendent Michelle Clayton today. Dr. Clayton has been an important member of our team, and has served the students of this school district exceptionally well for the last two years. She has helped to lay a strong foundation to move this system forward. Dr. Clayton will remain until mid-June to allow for a smooth transition of her duties. On a personal level, Michelle and I have worked together for over a decade, first in the Zachary Community School District and now in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System. Dr. Clayton is one the best educational leaders that I have ever had the pleasure to work with and she is as good a person as she is an educator. I wish her well in all of her future endeavors and will continue to support her both professionally and personally.
