Diane has not left yet. She is merely on Administrative Leave to consider her options. I prefer to remain positive that she will return.

Laurie, The header says Administator leaves post. That means she left. And while I respect Diane, I have to wonder about the water in Sumne these daysr...Who takes a "leave" and announces they are leaving or thinking of leaving? People usually consider their options first, then either leave or stay. Simple.

I've never heard of "thinking about leaving your job" and then be on Administrative leave. What's really going on here?
