Wake County School Superintendent Tony Tata has apologized to two board members.

Earlier this week, Tata accused Susan Evans and Christine Kushner of violating ethical rules as former members of "Great Schools in Wake."

Evans, Kushner, Tata, and School Board Chairman Kevin Hill met Friday to discuss the events of the past week.

A statement from the school board said, "We all agreed that Ms. Evans and Ms. Kushner have not violated any ethical rules or principles in their work as board members. Mr. Tata has apologized to these board members for suggesting otherwise and has acknowledged that he should have handled his concerns in a different manner."

The statement was signed by Hill, Evans, Kushner, Tata, and a school board attorney.
