Ansonia’s Board of Education formally accepted a letter of resignation Wednesday from high school principal Terri Goldson.
“It has been a pleasure and honor to serve the students, parents, staff and entire community as a teacher and administrator in the City of Ansonia,” Goldson wrote in the letter, his first public statement since being put on an unexplained leave in December.
“I wish Ansonia Public Schools continued success.”

Apparently that statement hasn’t reached 42 Grove St. in Ansonia, where the school board met Thursday.
