Marion County’s schools chief and Board of Education members haven’t heard from fellow school board member Terry Case since he turned himself in on theft charges Dec. 15.
Director of Schools Mark Griffith said Monday he has been unable to reach Case to discuss his intentions as a school board member amid felony theft allegations arising from Case’s former job as executive director of the South Pittsburg Housing Authority.
“I have sent emails to board members, but as far as an individual response, I have had none,” Griffith said.
Griffith said that, to his knowledge, Case has not had a conversation with any other board members or officials since the arrest. Griffith said school system officials want to know what Case’s plans are for his post on the board.
Case has not returned calls to a residential phone number under his name, and his lawyer, Dunlap attorney Steve Greer, couldn’t be reached for comment Monday.
