NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Natchez-Adams School District’s board of trustees has voted to terminate the contract of its superintendent, Frederick Hill.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1UVsHNd) Tuesday’s 3-0 vote, taken after an executive session, came just shy of two weeks after school board member Philip West first openly called for Hill’s resignation or termination.

West cited the September federal jury finding that Hill had violated civil rights laws by discriminating against a former white principal by creating a hostile work environment and forcing her into retirement.

Hill was absent from Tuesday’s meeting, but said he respected the board’s decision.

The trustees voted to appoint Fred Butcher to serve as interim superintendent.
