Board member Arthur Benson also resigned. No word on why both said peace out to the district.
KMBC reported that an emergency school-board meeting is scheduled for noon today. The TV station also reported that there were reports of Covington butting heads with board president Airick West, possibly over a major construction project.
Fox 4 released a copy of Benson's resignation letter, in which he writes that Covington may be persuaded to stay if West resigns.
