North Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – North Syracuse Central School District Superintendent Kim Dyce Faucette resigned on Friday.
Dyce Faucette’s contract would have concluded at the end of the year.
The NSCD School Board has accepted her resignation, a board member confirmed on Friday.
As part of the terms, the board agreed to buy out the remaining year of Dyce Faucette's contract.
They have appointed another administrator, Annette Speach, as interim superintendent.
Dyce Faucette took over the school district after longtime Central New York educator Jerome Melvin retired.
Speach has worked in the district since 1985 when she started as a teacher.
She acknowledged that the Dyce Faucette’s tenure had significant challenges.
“It’s no secret we've had some difficult times here, coming off a difficult budget cycle and some other issues so the direction will hopefully involve some time to put the district back on the right track,” Speach said.
