SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Following City High Principal Mark Hanson’s resignation, effective June 30, he will receive $15,000 on top of his usual salary for the school year, according to a separate agreement. The public document was signed by Hanson as well as Jim Pederson, Iowa City School District human-resources director.

Hanson officially resigned on Feb. 13 amid much community controversy, which culminated in 80 parents, students, and staff members showing up at the School Board’s Feb. 23 meeting to demonstrate support for Hanson.

The document acknowledges the district’s obligation to pay Hanson the additional $15,000 and provide Hanson with “mutually acceptable letters of recommendation.”

In return, Hanson must agree not to sue the district, not to seek re-employment in the district, and to “fully and faithfully fulfill” his duties as principal.
