Superintendent Linda Clark to Resign From West Ada School District
BOISE (KTVB) -- Linda Clark, Superintendent of the West Ada School district, will announce her forced resignation on Friday at 2 p.m.
The law firm Strindberg & Scholnick confirmed to KTVB that there will be a press conference to announce the decision.
Clark's contract was set to end in 2017.
Although Clark has not yet announced the reason for her resignation, she and members of the school board have clashed repeatedly. The board voted to void a contract extension for Clark in late September, arguing that the previous board violated open meeting laws when they voted to put it in place in June.
Board members also criticized perks built into the superintendent's contract, including a 20 percent buyout and use of a car, arguing the benefits were inappropriate in a cash-strapped district.
School Board member Mike Vuittonet, who has gone to bat for Clark during the recent conflicts, said Friday he was surprised by the decision.
