DPS agreed to pay Corr’s salary and retirement contributions, and provide insurance benefits through the her current contract year - which ends in July.  The district will not pay out the remaining 2 years on her contract. The package is worth more than $100,000.

The deal was approved by the school board after a meeting Tuesday.

Corr was placed on paid administrative leave at the end of November 2017, after the district accused her of creating a hostile work environment, failing to effectively communicate with the school board, and behaving unprofessionally during last summer’s teacher contract negotiations. Soon after, Corr denied the allegations through her attorneys.

Dr. Elizabeth Lolli, Associate Superintendent For Teaching and Learning, is acting as the district’s interim superintendent. There’s no word yet on when the search for a permanent replacement will begin.
