BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The Birmingham City Schools superintendent has announced his resignation.

Superintendent Craig Witherspoon on Tuesday announced that his resignation will be effective Dec. 31, 2014. He said that would give the board enough time to find a replacement.

Witherspoon read from a statement as he announced the decision at a school board meeting Tuesday night. WBRC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1tA6SzT) that he offered little information on why he is resigning, and did not take questions following the announcement.

Witherspoon has worked as Birmingham superintendent for four and a half years.

In 2012, members of that school board tried to fire him but Witherspoon was reinstated. That’s also the year the state took over the school system to bring them in line with state laws concerning finances.
