HENRICO - Henrico school board member Diana Winston has resigned from the board effective next Wednesday and the investigation continues into the relationship between Winston and Henrico superintendent Patrick Russo.
The school board placed Russo on paid leave at its meeting last week where Winston reportedly left the meeting and didn't come back. Winston's husband owns a marketing company and reportedly did work for the school system and now that relationship is being examined.
"The review will take the time that's needed," says Dr. Patrick Kenlaw, Deputy Superintendent. "We don't know how much time that it needs at this point."
Russo is using his accrued time off while on leave and it is business as usual as the school baord gets ready for the next school year.
The next school board meeting is August 22, the day after Winston's resignation becomes official.
