RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. — Eric Koenig, Ridgefield Park Schools Superintendent, read his letter of resignation at Wednesday evening's Board of Education meeting.

The board in March called an emergency meeting to discuss financial problems facing the district and vote on suspending the embattled superintendent. The vote ended in a tie: 5-5, and Koenig kept his job.

The school district has seen financial and performance difficulties the past few years -- and operated at a deficit for roughly eight.
