When asked to comment on her resignation, Beane said, “I feel like I have given all that I can to the school division that I love so dearly.”

Beane said the issues between the town council and the schools did not have an effect on her decision to resign.

If she had stayed, she said, she would have continued to “try to heal the relationship.”"In order to get anything accomplished you have to work together,” she said.

When asked if she was considering another position elsewhere, she said she was “considering other options.” She posted a letter on the school division’s website Thursday.

Beane, who has held the position for nearly two years, was the previous director of instruction for the town system.

She has held positions in the town since 1999, serving as director of technology, working within the human resources department and helping with licensure.

Her resignation comes amid turmoil in the town to fund the school division.
