Superintendent Severance

Oklahoma City, OK: (Jan-23-08) John Porter, former Superintendent of the Oklahoma City School, brought charges against the school after he was suspended from his position, after less than seven months on the job. The dispute stemmed from Porter's clashes with board Chairman Cliff Hudson on various issues, which finally led to Porters suspension and resignation.

The parties reached a settlement agreement with regards to Porter's severance package. Under the deal, school officials claimed that Porter will be paid his salary and health insurance premiums through June 30, 2008 and Porter must reimburse the district $5,000 in disputed expenses and claims. Further, the board voted to pay Porter's settlement expenses totaling $71,530. School board spokespersons stated that the agreement requires Hudson to resign after about seven years on the board and rescinds the board's earlier adoption of a series of allegations claiming Porter was involved with financial irregularities, mainly concerning his personal expenses.
