In a statement, Gregg said he was proud of the work accomplished during his tenure, and that he worked with a "talented, dedicated administrative staff.

Before becoming Superintendent of the Christina School District, Gregg held an administrative position with a district in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. He has had a career in education that's lasted more than 39 years.

"I want to thank Gregg for his dedication to the Christina School District and his many contributions," Christina Board of Education Meredith Griffin said in a statement. "We wish him all the best as he embarks on the next chapter in his distinguished career."

Gregg didn't return a request for an interview.
