Assistant superintendent for Columbia schools resigns
COLUMBIA - One of Columbia Public Schools' assistant superintendents resigned Monday night, district spokeswoman Michelle Baumstark confirmed to KOMU 8 News.
The Board of Education voted to accept Dr. Kevin Brown's resignation at its Monday meeting. Brown, according to Baumstark, accepted a job with another school district; his last day will be Friday, October 12.
Brown's resignation comes as the administrator still faces two lawsuits filed by other CPS administrators. Andrew McCarthy and Rachel Henderson, who are married, each filed a lawsuit against Brown and the district in 2016, claiming discrimination and retaliation. Both claim Brown punished them for filing grievances against him.
McCarthy's lawsuit is scheduled for trial in September 2019.
