CCSD School Board Mops Up After Herring Fiasco

Charleston County School Board members must be breathing sighs of relief this week: Lisa Herring, who had been put forward as a potential new superintendent and then snubbed in the final process, promised not to sue them. According to the agreement reached between Herring and the district, "Herring agrees to 'execute a general release of claims against CCSD, its Board of Trustees and each trustee individually, officers, employees and agents.'”

A new position of deputy superintendent was created for Herring, with a salary of $140,000 per year plus benefits. The district will also pay her legal fees amounting to about $35,000.

It's been a steep learning process for Board Chairman Cindy Bohn Coats. Let's hope she's learned from the process.
