Sources: Selma City Schools leaders will be allowed to resign


Sources tell WSFA 12 News there will be no hearings next week for the three former leaders of the Selma City Schools system.

12 News has learned an 'agreement is in the works' that would allow former superintendent Gerald Shirley and his top two deputies to resign. The two officials are Wanda McCall and Mamie Solomon.

Superintendent Shirley refutes the report saying he will not be resigning.

The three were put on leave after an investigation by the Alabama Department of Education uncovered major fiscal problems and academic issues at Selma High School last fall.

That same investigation showed a Selma High School teacher having sexual relations with two students, which blew the investigation wide open. Former teacher LaTangela Williams was fired, pleaded guilty in court and sentenced to 10 years in prison, but the judge reduced that to 14 months in the Dallas County jail.

Shirley, McCall and Solomon were in the process of getting fired and the purpose of next week's hearings was to allow them to explain to the state why they shouldn't be dismissed.

WSFA 12 News will stay on top of this developing story as more details emerge.
