HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville City School has terminated a pilot program with it's alternative school, Pinnacle Schools.

Interim Superintendent Tom Drake has directed the system to continue the services in-house.

This decision follows last month's resignation of the former superintendent, Casey Wardynski, because of his romantic relationship with Pinnacle founder Karen Lee. Wardynski abruptly resigned only a day before payments were up for discussion for the school board.

Pinnacle allows students to pull out of their regular classes to receive additional academic and behavioral supports.
