Chair Dan Wade is stepping down over comments he made earlier this week

At the urging of fellow school board members, the chair is stepping down over comments he made earlier this week about student clothing choices inviting harassment. Chair Dan Wade, a board member for nine years, told the board during a special meeting Wednesday to expect his letter of resignation by the next school board meeting. It didn’t appear Wade was poised to quit the board early in the meeting as he addressed attendees and fellow school officials about comments he made Monday evening and apologized for them. His opening statement made no mention of resignation from the board. It wasn’t until three board members encouraged him to step down that he said he would. He student told the board that the dress code needs to change. Wade said, “You’ll have my resignation letter by the next meeting.”
