— The chief financial officer of Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools has resigned amid a contract policy violation, the school district said Monday.

In a statement, the Board of Education said a contract with the company Education Elements wasn’t properly submitted to the board and didn’t allow for public discussion.

Contracts worth more than $90,000 must be presented to the Board of Education for approval, the district said.

Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Bennett resigned, the district said.

She joined the district in February 2019.

The district will host a special meeting on March 5 to allow public comment about the issue.
