It is unclear whether the resignations were over the assignment, with Williamson County Schools Communications Director Carol Birdsong telling The Daily Caller News Foundation over email that “no reason was given.”

WCS Superintendent Mike Looney apologized to Sunset families in a letter on Feb. 28. The assignment, which was given to eighth grade students, would not be graded.
