The resignation came after reporters for the PHS newspaper, the Booster Redux published a through investigative report detailing discrepancies in Robertson's resume.
Probably the next investigation the students should do is on the quality of the background investigations the district does when it is hiring administrators and if it plans to do it differently as it searches for Robertson's replacement.
The district issued the following news release:
On March 6, Amy Robertson was hired by the Pittsburg Community Schools' Board of Education to become the head principal at Pittsburg High School. On April 4, 2017, Dr. Robertson resigned from her contract with Pittsburg Community Schools USD250.
In light of the issues that arose, Dr. Robertson felt it was in the best interest of the district to resign her position. The Board has agreed to accept her resignation.
The Board will reopen the position and begin the process anew.
The resignation came before a special board meeting which had been scheduled for tonight to discuss the questions that had been raised about the new principal.
