Facebook Controversy Ends With Resignation
02/09/2016

(KAIR)--The Horton High School Language Arts teacher, embroiled in controversy following the posting of a profanity-filled Facebook post, has resigned. 

That happened as part of Monday evening's meeting of the USD 430 Board of Education. 

The leadership of the South Brown County Schools accepted the resignation of Alisa Britt, effective immediately, at the conclusion of an executive session. 

Prior to the closed door meeting, the matter was referenced when district patron Lucas Heinen addressed the school board regarding the district's social media policy. 

District leadership has received concerns voiced by parents since the post, made on Britt's private Facebook account, went public. 

The matter was addressed twice last month, once during the regular meeting of the school board and again during a special meeting held mostly in executive session. 

The Facebook post, made by the teacher on her personal account, was comprised of  a vulgarity-laced tirade in support of  President Barack Obama's announcement of executive actions regarding gun violence. 

It closed by saying those in opposition are "the ones who deserve" to have their children, sibling, or spouse, shot. 

The post has since been removed.
