Marblehead Superintendent Gregory Maass resigns

MARBLEHEAD — Marblehead Superintendent Gregory Maass abruptly resigned last night during a School Committee budget hearing and with one year left on his contract.

In his resignation, Maass cited friction with a majority of the school board that he feels has "blurred" the oversight authority with the superintendent's function as day-to-day school chief.

"Quite frankly, I feel like a referee not a superintendent," Maass wrote in his resignation letter to the school board.

Maass's resignation means he is walking away from a $179,000 salary, according to town records. He was entering the final year of his deal.

The resignation, effective June 30, marks a sudden turn of events for the school system that has seen its top administrators leave in recent years.
