SITKA, Alaska (AP) - New Mount Edgecumbe High School Superintendent J Thayne has resigned.

The Daily Sitka Sentinel (https://is.gd/9NomIA) reports Thayne had been on the job at the state-run boarding school for little more than six months when he announced his resignation Friday, citing personal reasons.

His replacement, Bill Hutton, is set to begin next Monday. He is living out-of-state, so that leaves Edgecumbe without a top administrator for the first week of classes in the new semester.

State Deputy Education Commissioner Les Morse says he will handle the duties of the job from Juneau until Hutton’s arrival.

Hutton was superintendent from 2008 to 2010. He was replaced by Randy Hawk, who retired in July.



Hutton will stay at least through the end of the school year.
