Sebring board will buy out school superintendent's contract

Published: Mon, April 7, 2014 @ 12:25 p.m.

SEBRING — Village school board voted unanimously this morning to allow Superintendent Christopher Lewis to use sick/vacation time for the remainder of this school year and to buy out the remaining year of his contract for $111,000.

Toni Viscount, the elementary school principal, will serve double duty as principal and interim superintendent until the school board selects a new superintendent. Ray Harris, school board president, said the board plans to have a new superintendent in place for next school year.

Wow another 111,000 down the drain, that is the same they just gave the guy running the disability dept a few weeks ago after letting him sit home for 6 months! Hey why not the public doesn't seem to mind you clowns wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars and then putting on more levies and ask for more money to waste! This school board should be replaced with people with more sense!

I saw the news report that said he was suspended, but they found no wrong doing. Why are they buying his contract out? Were there further developments? This is a really wild story, isn't it?

I don't live in Sebring but have to ask WTF? If he was found to have done nothing wrong, why are you willing to pay him, and send him home with a years pay? If he did something wrong then fire him. What are you people doing? I'm sure these board members wouldn't do anything similar with their own money at home. There has to be some ethic issues with this.

One comment for getting a new board, others about nothing was wrong... Maybe you should do more investigation to find the man spent $162,000 on legal fees in less than 18 months.... He refused to bargain with the teachers.... He was suspended and brought back... You forgot the State is doing further investigation??? While the buying out is a large amount of $, this NEW BOARD acted in a swift manner that NEEDED done.
