GEORGETOWN, Del.- Shake-ups are continuing to happen within the Sussex Tech School District. This week, three Sussex Tech school resigned.

The resignation comes on the heels of an audit investigation only a few months ago that revealed financial and ethical missteps from a few board members. 

With the school year just beginning, the district's superintendent, Stephen H. Guthrie says the new shake-ups will not impact the new school year.

"The operation of the school will not be affected by these changes, we will have four members, which is the minimum we need to continue business with the school district," he said. 

Guthrie says in order for proposals to pass moving forward, the board will need to vote unanimously until they fill the positions. 

The school board tells WBOC that Gov. John Carney handles board appointments. It anticipate the vacancies will be filled soon. 

Guthrie says in light of the audit investigation and recent resignations, the district is working tirelessly to restore some of the distrust some in the area may feel towards the district. 

During the audit investigation, 67 staff members at Sussex Tech issued a vote of "no confidence" in a few board members. 

Until then, the district says it is just focused on having a great school year and moving forward.
