School officials have announced a meeting for Monday morning to discuss Dr. Suzanne Freeman’s contract. The short announcement stated, “The Trussville City Board of Education will hold a Called Meeting on Monday, July 16, 2012 at 7:30 a.m
. in the Board Room of Central Office for the purpose of the Superintendent’s Contract.”
In the monthly meeting held last Monday night, board attorney Donald Sweeney told audience members that he was close to finalizing a deal to buy out Dr. Freeman’s contract. The board then authorized Sweeney and board president Bill Roberts to finalize the buyout. Board members had hoped to discuss the buyout last Wednesday, but released a statement Tuesday night removing the item from the agenda of last Wednesday’s meeting. The announcement cited “logistics” as the reason for the deal not being completed.
There is no mention on the agenda of Monday’s called meeting regarding the appointment of an interim superintendent or principal for Hewitt Trussville High School.
