A day before he resigned as Decatur City Schools superintendent, Dan Brigman was communicating with school board President Karen Duke about his upcoming evaluation.

He was also talking through emails with board member Dwight Jett about roads around the new high schools and to Mayor Tab Bowling and a Decatur resident about the district’s plan to use the Aquadome as a physical education class site for Brookhaven Middle School students during the 2017-18 academic year.

Duke and school officials have declined to say why Brigman abruptly resigned March 18 after serving only 10 months of a three-year contract paying him $175,000 annually. He also received a $750 monthly vehicle allowance.

Brigman has not returned calls seeking comment, but emails The Decatur Daily obtained through a public records request indicate he apparently had no plans to resign and was preparing to attend a National School Board Association conference in Denver with some board members during spring break.
