The Superintendent of Litchfield Schools has stepped down from her position, according to multiple employees with the district.
Debbie Poffinbarger submitted her letter of resignation Monday, effective immediately. Former superintendent John Mullet will take over on an interim basis.
Poffinbarger took over as superintendent in January 2017, after Jeff Strieker resigned for personal reasons. She was given a five-year contract by the school board this January that would have kept her in that position through the 2022-23 school year.
The board will hold a special meeting Thursday to address the matter. The president of the board has not responded to a request for comment at this time.
