The Eleva-Strum School District has released details into why its previous superintendent was forced to resign last month.

The school board says Kelli Manning was "insubordinate and failed to cooperate with the district's investigation," which is why the board released Manning from her paid administrative leave. In a letter informing Manning of the board's decision, it stated Manning's refusal to respond to emails or show up for scheduled meetings was "bizarre and unacceptable." The board’s investigation also turned up Manning's refusal to meet teachers’ and students’ needs, specifically, students with special needs.

Manning was placed on paid administrative leave back in January and released in March.
