LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - The Limestone County School Board approved the resignation of Elkmont High School’s principal on Thursday morning.

A spokesperson for Limestone County Schools confirmed Tim Wyant’s resignation will be effective as of March 23, 2023.

Principal Wyant took over the role for the 2022-2023 school year replacing former Principal Elizabeth Cantrell.

WAFF reached out to Wyant to ask him why he was resigning, and never heard back. District leaders said they couldn’t go into detail on personnel matters.

John Witt is a parent with students in the school system. He told WAFF that Wyant is the best principal the school has had in the last decade. He said he’s worried that another change in school’s leadership will reflect poorly on the progression of Elkmont students.

“Mr. Wyant is a winner,” he said. “Whoever gets him, it’s their win and our loss. He had a plan in place at Elkmont, and was being proactive to take the necessary steps to make positive changes at Elkmont. If there was more transparency, there would be less questions like I’m asking here because they’d be forthcoming with information and be willing the share that information. The perception is this district does not inform the parents the way the want and deserved to be informed.”

Superintendent Randy Shearouse said the district will work their best to get the right replacement to reach more continuity.

“We have had some turnover, and of course that’s not something you want in a school environment,” he said. “You want consistency, and we’re going to do everything in our power to ensure we find that consistent leadership at Elkmont.”

He said parents are more than welcome to call the central office for any input or cocerns.
