WARSAW, NY (WKBW) - Warsaw School Superintendent Valerie Burke officially resigned yesterday after a DWI arrest that occurred last year.

Prior to yesterday's meeting, the school board had made a statement in regards to Burke saying she had been on vacation.

Burke had been superintendent since 2010.
