    There has to be more to this story. The fact Dr. Renfrow did not even show up to the board meeting last night, nor did he make the prerecorded call to all the parents is just fishy.
    I really did like Renfrow, but if he is wrong (which making this move at this time seems to be the case) then he is wrong and needs to move on. If he found to be wrong with everything that has gone on with CHS then he should not be able to keep his pay in my eyes.
    CHS is a mess right now and him jumping ship is a easy way out.

    I am in Michigan right now but I stream NPR from NC in the mornings and I believe they stated he resigned.

    Yep, from the article in the first post:

    The board voted 7-to-0 to accept Dr. Renfrow’s resignation, which is effective Wednesday, Aug. 28th.

    However, it does not preclude the resignation from being the first step in retirement.

    How this is all playing out is a big mess. I for one USED to like Renfrow. Now with how this CHS mess has played out, has turned me away. I was looking forward to my child going to CHS with Jones being there and all the great things he has done with the school. Instead she went into the school not knowing her classes, where to go, nothing other than homeroom. And lets not talk about the schedule changes that everyone has to make.

    If it's not crooked it damn sure looks that way. I say it needs investigating. The good ole boy network crap needs to stop. No one school board member should be re-elected next time as far as I'm concerned and I'm no move in. I've seen it all my life here.

    He should have handled Jones grievances when he first filed them. This is where most of his heat is coming from. BUT this is not the only things he has done wrong in his time in office. CHS mess just brought on to much heat him for to handle, so he took the easy way out. He has learned he has messed with the wrong town!

    "In a statement the district released Monday afternoon announcing Causby's decision, he said he has ruled against Jones' grievance involving former Superintendent Ross Renfrow. Causby also said Jones will be on probation during the 2019-20 school year."
    causby ruled against bennet's grievance but reinstated him? but on probation. what are the achievements bennett has to meet?

    I have been so disappointed with the current school board. Between the Renfrow resignation payout, the Clayton High witch hunt, internal office pay raises, and Selma Middle mascot change ... it seems they are willing to spend money on anything except staff and students. I was disgusted by Peggy Smith’s answers and behavior when I called her to learn more about the Renfrow ‘voluntarily’ resignation. I was once a fan of his ... but I am so glad he is gone now!! I believe 4 slots come up on the school board during the 2020 election. It’s time to clean house. They all need to go ... with 1 exception. I actually like most of what Ron Johnson says & does. I wasn’t please that he signed the document agreeing not to be transparent in the Renfrow resignation. I doubt he would make the same choice if he had it to do over again. What happened at Clayton High could happen anywhere. How do you take a Principal of the Year and try to bury him?? Johnston County already pays teachers less (and superintendents more) than surrounding counties. It seems this school board has lost the trust of many parents, students & staff members. It’s time to clean house and bring in better folks!
