The South Shelby School Board has called an emergency meeting Thursday night after its incoming superintendent was arrested for stealing from his former school.
Mike Rennells, 34, of Grant City is accused of using the Worth County School District's credit card for his own personal use.
Rennells was put on administrative leave last month when the investigation began.
South Shelby School Board President Jerry Fenton says they accepted the resignation of Rennells and rescinded a contract of his wife, who was hired for another position.
Fenton says the board will now possibly look at hiring an interim superintendent which can come in the next couple weeks.
The school district is using former North Shelby Superintendent Larry Smoot as a consultant.
Fenton says they already have a few people in mind for who will fill the vacant position.
