Kim Dyce Faucette, a former top administrator with the Rochester school district, has resigned as superintendent of the North Syracuse Central School District, according to a report on the Syracuse Post-Standard’s website.
The district’s school board voted 9-0 in favor of accepting Dyce Faucette’s resignation. Her resignation follows a tough budget fight for the 2013-2014 school year that reduced athletic and extracurricular activities.
The budget called for Dyce Faucette to receive a $182,000 annual salary, according to the report, and her three-year contract was scheduled to end next summer.
The report mentions several controversial events that occurred under Dyce Faucette's supervision, but there are few details of her direct involvement. The decision to leave the Syracuse position was mutual, according to statements made by Dyce Faucette.
Dyce Faucette left the RCSD in 2011. She was chief of staff and a long-time employee.
