Hamer To Resign April 30th



School board member Martavius Jones has confirmed that Deputy Superintendent Irving Hamer will resign effective April 30th.

Jones said he received a "privileged" notification Tuesday but did not open it until Wednesday morning. He declined to disclose it but confirmed that Hamer said he plans to resign at the end of April.

Hamer is accused of making crude remarks about an MCS employee at a party for Superintendent Kriner Cash in February. He is currently on unpaid leave.

"I didn't know what the outcome would be," said Jones. "I laud him for the work that he has done and we just have to move forward."
