Superintendent Ron Brawner wasn't at Tuesday's meeting because he was in South Carolina for his own wedding, officials said.

School board members said the firing was linked to the school's financial problems. The district faces a possible annexation into a nearby district when the state Board of Education meets July 14.

The Greenland School Board fired its superintendent Tuesday, as the northwest Arkansas district faces money problems and a forced annexation by the state.

The 930-student Greenland School District was classified as fiscally distressed earlier this year, and a spokeswoman for the Department of Education said last week that Greenland is projected to end this fiscal year with a deficit of almost $300,000.
