The latest is that Superintendent Tyrus Wessel has resigned to take a job with the Traverse Bay Intermediate School District. The job comes with a $12,000 drop in pay, from the estimated $106,000 that he was going to make as superintendent in the fall to approximately $93,000.
Wessell said he won’t miss issues that he said have distracted him and the school community from focusing on improving Northport’s teaching and learning environment. “Being embroiled in a special education administrative law hearing is a very challenging experience,” he said.
