BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - The former Manatee County school superintendent who was seeking early retirement after losing the support of the school board will be paid more than $130,000 from the district.

The Bradenton Herald (http://bit.ly/1FNaO5Z ) reports Rick Mills will be paid by the Manatee County School District a total of $134,586.71 for time he was not employed by the school district and no longer serving as superintendent. He’ll collect his last paycheck October 10.

In late April, Mills said he was seeking an early retirement from the school district because he said he could no longer perform effectively as a superintendent. Mills’ contract had run until 2017. In a May 12 meeting, the board and Mills agreed to relieve him of his duties and pay him for 20 weeks of work.
