Nome school superintendent resigns amid allegations

Nome schools superintendent Mike Brawner has submitted his resignation effective March 4, citing family circumstances, amid allegations of an undisclosed nature that have been the subject of at least one meeting by the Alaska Professional Teaching Practices Commission, reports The Nome Nugget. 

Patricia Truman of the PTPC confirmed that the board had met concerning allegations, but that because they involve an administrator, the case will be heard by the Commissioner of Education. Truman could not discuss specifics of the allegations, stating, “We have our regulations, and we have to follow due process.”
