CCS Chief To Retire

A Columbus City Schools source tells WCBE superintendent Gene Harris will announce her retirement this afternoon.The announcement is scheduled to take place at the King Arts Complex. The source spoke on condition of anonymity. District higher-ups have been expecting the announcement for months. It comes amid the district's attendance data-fixing scandal and continued fighting between the administration and the school board. The source says the resignation will take effect at the end of the school year. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
