PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) - Phenix City school officials say they plan to vote on a settlement that would end a nearly year-long dispute with its former superintendent.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports (https://bit.ly/1qwm2Ed) that the undisclosed dollar amount would end the dispute that started 11 months ago between the east Alabama school system and former Superintendent Larry DiChiara.

Board president Brad Baker said the board still has to vote on the settlement. He said it will be on the school board’s agenda for its Oct. 23 meeting.

In November 2003, the Phenix City Board of Education voted to buy out DiChiara’s contract. DiChiara then sued, claiming breach of contract. The two sides then met for a mediation session Monday to try to settle the dispute.
