COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A member of the Ohio Board of Education is resigning for what he describes as "personal reasons."
Dennis Shelton wrote to Gov. John Kasich's (KAY'-sihks) administration in an email this week that he would be stepping down from the board, effective Friday.
Shelton was an at-large member of the board from Delaware. He was appointed to the post by Republican Kasich in January 2011.
Shelton was a past superintendent of Triad Local and Caldwell Exempted Village schools. He has also been a classroom teacher, a building principal, director of curriculum, and business director prior to becoming a superintendent in 1988.
Kasich will appoint a replacement for Shelton, with the consent of the Ohio Senate.
