PAGE, Ariz. (AP) — The superintendent of the Page Unified School District has resigned after allegedly making a racist remark at a meeting.
District officials say Larry Wallen's resignation came late Sunday evening. They say Wallen will be on administrative reassignment and won't perform any duties as superintendent pending the conclusion of the terms of his resignation.
