Mannsville schools chief will exit after arrest
MANNSVILLE, Okla. (KTEN) — Mannsville Public Schools Superintendent Brandi Price-Kelty will resign from her position on February 29 after the board of trustees reached a resignation agreement at its Monday night meeting.
The announcement comes about a month after Price-Kelty was placed on paid administrative leave after being charged with public intoxication.
Police arrested her on campus after she appeared to be visibly under the influence to other staffers.
Under the agreement, Price-Kelty will remain on paid administrative leave until the end of February, at which point her contract will come to an end.
Price-Kelty will then be restricted from having any contact with the school.
Interim Superintendent Donna Anderson will remain at the helm until June 30. The school board will then begin a search for the next permanent superintendent.
The Mannsville district in southwest Johnston County serves about 100 students in grades K-8.
