KILLINGLY, Conn. (WTNH) – The chairwoman of the Killingly Board of Education resigned Friday morning.

In a one-sentence letter to the town clerk, Janice Joly did not say why she resigned.

“Please be advised that effective immediately, on Friday, April 8, 2022, I am resigning my position as a member of the Killingly Board of Education,” Joly wrote.

Joly’s resignation comes after the board rejected a proposal during a March 16 meeting to open a school-based mental health center, which would offer behavioral and mental health services to students at no cost to the district.

Dozens of parents filed a complaint with the state against the Killingly Board of Education, saying the board is blocking their kids from getting the services they need in school.

Joly did not say why she resigned.
