FORSYTH, Ga. (AP) - Outgoing Monroe County school Superintendent Anthony Pack will take more than $172,000 in a deal to end his contract.

Multiple news outlets report the board voted Saturday to accept the deal. On Monday, Assistant Superintendent Jackson Daniel said Pack and the school board had a hand in the agreement. The board cited a “no clause” separation in Pack’s contract in firing him, meaning they weren’t required to give any reason.

Pack’s lawyer, David Dorer, says the buyout was initiated by the school board and his client had not been given 30-days-notice, but agreed to the terms. Dorer says it was his understanding the move was made in response to Pack’s extended medical leave that began in mid-March.

Dorer says Pack will pursue another superintendent job.
