8B Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter : YIR, from page 5B more after the "agreement be- comes public." "When the agreement is fi- nalized, I'll be happy to share my personal plans," said Su- perintendent Glenn Harris. What the men are referring to is the separation agreement that both parties agreed to in principle during closed session at the April 18 school board meeting. Following the closed ses- sion, school board president Chris Russell issued this state- ment: "The board took action, by a unanimous vote, to autho- rize a separation agreement between the district and super- intendent that contemplates his resignation as district and county superintendent. The board has approved the terms and authorized the board to sign a final agreement subject to those terms." ~* Plumas County Public Health Agency Director Mimi Hall formally withdrew her resignation April 18. A month after reading an emotional resignation letter during a Board of Supervisors meeting, Hall sent a letter to the supervisors saying she wanted to come back, if they would have her. "Two things that have not changed are my love for the Plumas County community and my desire to contribute to our residents through my dedi- cation and expertise as a pub- lic health professional," Hall wrote in the letter to the board. But two things have changed in the month since Hall re- signed. The supervisors ousted county administrative officer Jack Ingstad on April 10, and the nonprofit health care orga- nization that hired Hall was sold. May 2 As of May 1, Glenn Harris ceased to perform any duties as superintendent of Plumas Unified School District or Plumas County Office of Edu- cation. But he'll continue to get paid for another year: $10,775 in compensation and $930 for health care each month for 12 months, for a to- tal severance package of $140,460. In an agreement announced April 27, Harris "irrevocably" resigned from both posts. His last day of work was April 30. Plumas Coun(:y's auditor- controller said the political battles associated! with her job finally took their toll last week. "The political issues were just a little more than I could take," Shawn Montgomery said. "I don't hav.e the person- ality for it. I thought I did, but I guess I don't." Montgomery sounded more relieved than bitter after sub- mitting a letter Of resignation to the Board of Supervisors on April 24. Montgomery reportedly clashed with co, unty depart- ment heads during her time in office. The public health agency, criminal justice leaders, pub- lic works and oth er county de- partments publicly criticized her. County officers said the au- ditor created accounting "roadblocks" t:;hat compro- mised the depart:ments' ability to provide services. May 16 Emotions rarl high at the regular monthly meeting of the Plumas Unified School Dis- trict board of trustees. The meeting, held in the Chester ElemeJatary School gymnasium, featured several topics that sparked outcries from the audience, but un- doubtedly the mo,st anticipated item on the agenda was the discussion and action on school closures mad/or consoli- dations. "It's the elephant in the room," said Dan Brown, an in- structor at Greenville High School, in reference to the agenda item. June 6 Plumas County Supervisors Lori Simpson and Terry Swof- ford earned another four years on the job after posting lop- sided victories in last week's primary voting. Both incumbents avoided a November run-o,ff election by capturing more than 50 per- cent of the votes in their re- spective three-person races. The two supervisors, who will begin serv ig their second terms in January 2013, said they were surprised and thankful for the overwhelming show of support.
