Algona superintendent resigns

Refers to 'negative insinuations and false statements.'

ALGONA, Iowa – The superintendent of the Algona Community School District has resigned.

Marty Fonley submitted his letter of resignation to the Board of Education on Friday. In the letter, Fonley refers to what he calls “negative insinuations and false statements” made about him. “I have been asked repeatedly why I don’t respond or refute the accusations,” he writes. “In my opinion, as a leader and as a professional there is no value in engaging these types of comments.”

Fonley’s resignation comes after the June 11 meeting of the Algona Board of Education where former elementary principal Stacy Mueller spoke about her position being eliminated and complained about being treated unfairly.

The Board of Education is scheduled to consider the process of replacing Fonley at their Monday night meeting.

Fonley's letter of resignation is below.
