Horry County superintendent has 21 days to sign resignation agreement

Horry County Schools officials are working out a resignation deal with outgoing superintendent Dr. Cindy Elsberry, and it remains unclear who will serve as interim superintendent beginning in January.

Elsberry resigned from her position on Monday night, at least two years before her contract expires. The Board of Education accepted her decision during an executive session.

Elsberry has 21 days to sign the resignation agreement between board and superintendent, said Teal Harding, district spokeswoman. Harding said the superintendent then has seven days to revoke her decision after signing the agreement.

Board Chairman Joe DeFeo could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
