MORROW, OH (FOX19) -

Little Miami Superintendent Dan Bennett told the school board Tuesday night he was leaving to become the superintendent at Greenon Local Schools.

Bennett served as Little Miami's superintendent for eight years and is now stepping down just months after the districts eighth failed levy and while the district is in fiscal emergency.

"I don't have an opinion about the man, but the education was great and that's what matters," said Larry Sheridan, parent.

"I think it will be a positive, and I think it will give Little Miami a fresh start and hopefully it will help the levy to pass," said Jennifer Koth, parent.

Some parents say with Bennett gone, a levy has a better chance of passing.

"Some of the parents in the school district have been disappointed with some of the things that have happened," said Koth. "I have heard that if he leaves it will be a benefit and people will vote."

School Board President Kym Dunbar said the board is still digesting the news but isn't shocked with Bennett's decision.

"The district has dealt with adversity lately and this is another piece of the puzzle," said Dunbar. "We wish him well in his new endeavor."

Dunbar also acknowledges how difficult it will be filling the void.

"Usually when you bring in a new superintendent you have something to sell and have somebody waiting in the wings to take over. However we've lost a lot of administrators, it's going to be difficult," said Dunbar  

The school board will be having a special meeting Thursday night and will discuss its next steps to replace Bennett as superintendent.
