She's submitted her resignation, but that doesn't mean it will be accepted.

After more than three months of fighting allegations of misconduct, Waynesboro High School choir teacher Tracy Straight said Wednesday she's through fighting for her job.

But the School Board said it will decide Thursday night whether to accept that resignation.

It also will announce if it agrees with School Superintendent Lowell Lemons' recommendation to fire Straight.

The Board also has considered an undisclosed recommendation from the fact-finding panel, which also will be made public Thursday night.

The Board says Straight's resignation attempt does not change the need to announce its own recommendation.

"What we feel is a tremendous burden to the process as well as to making sure that the Superintendent and Mrs. Straight continues to get the proper due process under the code," explained School Board Chairwoman Lorie Smith.

That process will end Thursday night at 7:30 at the School Board offices.
