CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) - The Cullman City Schools Superintendent has resigned after a below-average performance review from the Alabama Association of School Boards.

Multiple news outlets report Doreen Griffeth submitted her resignation Thursday during a specially called meeting with the Board of Education. The superintendent still had a year left in her contract.

Griffeth resigned in the wake of an Alabama Association of School Boards evaluation of her tenure at the district. Officials say Griffeth received middle-range scores in most categories, but her lowest was in feedback from the school board.

Cullman City School Board President Steven Sides says the board has structured a settlement to buy out the rest of Griffeth’s contract. That payment will be a little more than $82,000.
