“Valeria Silva has less than a month to lead St. Paul’s public schools. The St. Paul school board removed the district superintendent at a tense meeting Tuesday night.
Silva’s superintendent contract ends July 15. She’ll stay on with the district in an advisory role until September 2017, pulling down her full current salary. The board voted 5-2 in favor of the severance package, which will cost the district $787,500.
Board Chairperson Jon Schumacher said he believes the change will save the district money in the long run.”
