The executive director of the Foster Care Review Board has resigned under pressure from the board.
Carolyn Stitt won’t disclose much about the disagreement that forced her resignation, only disclosing she received an ultimatum from the board.
“It’s been a pleasure to work on behalf of abused and neglected children,” Stitt told Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN. “And, I’ve had an opportunity to work with just amazing staff and do amazing work on behalf of children.”
Stitt met with the 11-member review board to work out a settlement. She will serve as a consultant until the beginning of May at full salary and benefits.
The Nebraska Foster Care Review Board is an independent arm of the state government. It is charged with tracking foster care cases to ensure children are being cared for properly.
