A St. Paul teacher who was captured on video using a racial slur is resigning, according to district documents. 

Parents identified the teacher as Wendy Brilowski, who taught at Highland Park Middle School. The district had previously confirmed Brilowski was on administrative leave.

Brilowski's resignation is listed on the agenda for Tuesday's school board meeting. In the agenda, it lists May 10 as her effective resignation date. 

KSTP's attempts to reach Brilowski for comment were not successful. 

The video that was captured was shared by parents on social media. 

St. Paul Public Schools Superintendent Joe Gothard issued a statement regarding the video earlier this month.

"No matter the situation, the racist and foul language used by a staff member in the video has no place in Saint Paul Public Schools," the statement from Gothard read.
