ELWOOD, IN (WTHR/NBC News) The embattled superintendent of Indiana’s Elwood Community Schools has resigned her position.

The announcement was made at a Friday school board meeting that Casey Smitherman had stepped down.

Smitherman was recently arrested and charged with insurance and identity fraud after she took a 15-year-old male student to a private clinic for treatment of possible strep throat. At the clinic, she allegedly claimed in insurance paperwork the student was her son.
