Vancouver Public Schools agreed to pay former superintendent Steve Webb $455,000 when Webb and the school board agreed to part ways last week.
According to the “retirement agreement and release” obtained Friday by The Columbian through a public records request, the payment is split over two equal lump sums and represents various accrued leaves and terms of employment outlined in Webb’s professional services contract.
The first half is to be paid 30 days following the execution of the agreement, which was signed by both parties on Feb. 11. The second lump sum is set to be paid Jan. 4, 2022.
As part of the deal, the district and Webb agree to not disparage each other personally and professionally. They also agreed that neither side was admitting any liability in making the agreement.
Both parties also agreed to a public announcement of Webb’s retirement, which the district provided Feb. 11.
