District investigating financial agreement made by former employee
SEATTLE–Seattle Public Schools is looking into a settlement agreement that a former district employee entered into with Seattle Education Association (SEA) for more than $500,000, and without superintendent or School Board approval. The agreement is related to long-term pay for substitutes, some of which has already been distributed.
The district will complete a review of how this occurred and continue legal assessment to decide a course of action. The district will provide updates as they become available.
