Board Approves Interim School Superintendent

Fri, 02 Nov 2018 12:20:46 CDT


The Litchfield School Board agreed to a contract with an interim superintendent Thursday evening, filling a vacancy that was left by Debbie Poffinbarger earlier this week.

After meeting in closed session for nearly an hour and a half, the board approved a 120 working day contract with John Mullet, who will take over as the district's superintendent for the remainder of the school year. Mullet previously served as Litchfield's superintendent for two years before retiring in 2015.

Before Mullet's appointment, the board approved a mutual separation agreement with Poffinbarger. They released a statement addressing the matter.

“On November 1, 2018, the Board of Education of Litchfield Community Unit School District No. 12 and Debbie Poffinbarger, Superintendent, entered into a mutual separation agreement. Effective immediately and by mutual agreement, Mrs. Poffinbarger will no longer serve as the District's Superintendent and her employment with the district will end June 30, 2019. The decision of the Board and Mrs. Poffinbarger to enter into this agreement was amicable and mutual."

The next Litchfield School Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13, at 6 p.m.
