Officials announced on Monday that Dr. Carol Birks has signed a separation agreement with the New Haven Board of Education.
According to the Board of Education’s Separation Agreement with Birks, her employment will end Oct. 31 and she will receive $175,000 in severance.
Though her employment will end at the end of October, she will remain available as a consultant until the last day of the year.
Birks had been under intense scrutiny over her handling of the bus stop debacle at the start of the school year and her plan to eliminate teacher positions to close a budget hole.
Assistant Superintendent Ilene Tracey will act as interim Superintendent.
