CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board has voted to accept Superintendent Heath Morrison’s “voluntary resignation.”

Multiple media outlets report the board voted 6-3 on Thursday to accept Superintendent Heath Morrison’s resignation. Deputy Superintendent Ann Clark will take over as interim superintendent.

On Monday, Morrison said he was resigning because he needed to concentrate on his family, and specifically on his mother. The Charlotte Observer later reported that Morrison’s departure came just days after the district’s general counsel compiled a report that outlines allegations that Morrison lied to and misled the board about a building project at UNC Charlotte and created a “culture of fear” among his employees, frequently belittling them in public.

The report recommended that the school board terminate Morrison’s contract.
