Ann Cardon is no longer the superintendent of Traverse City Area Public Schools.

She resigned Thursday night.

At a special meeting of the school board, school board member Stacey Hozak read Cardon’s resignation letter.

“Unfortunately things are not working out well and I believe that it is in the best interests for all concerned that I resign,” Hozak read from Cardon's letter.

Cardon, who was not at the meeting, has allegedly been at odds with several board members for weeks over issues like school funding.

Board President Sue Kelly didn’t comment on the specifics of the separation agreement.

She says personnel issues like this are confidential.

“It is of utmost importance that we abide by that oath of office, that we abide by our code of ethics,” Kelly said.

The Board unanimously approved former TCAPS Superintendent Jim Pavelka to serve as Cardon’s interim replacement, effective immediately.
