BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont school district will pay the teaching principal of an elementary school for the remainder of the school year and part of the next fiscal year in return for his resignation at the end of June.
The Bennington Banner reports Brian Crego has been on paid administrative leave since Feb. 10.
Crego, teaching principal of Monument Elementary School in Bennington, said last month he was suspended because he does not have a teaching license from the state. He has an administrative license. Crego said he was upfront about it before being hired. He said he anticipated the superintendent applying for a provisional license while he worked to obtain one.
A statement from the Bennington School District cites "differences" that prevented both sides from establishing a comfortable working relationship.
