Fort Worth ISD sets terms of Dansby’s departure

🕐 1 min read

Walter Dansby, who resigned as Fort Worth Independent School District Superintendent on Monday, will receive $662,398 as part of his separation agreement with the district. Dansby will also be employed by the district through Jan. 31, 2015 and collect a salary of about $185 per hour as the “ambassador of public relations,” a newly created position.

That will bring his overall financial compensation to about $900,000. The agreement was released Tuesday. Dansby voluntary resigned Monday night following a four-hour, closed door session called to discuss his job performance. The resignation was accepted in a 6-3 vote by the Fort Worth ISD’s board.  In a letter to the community on the Fort Worth ISD website, Dansby wrote: “This is one of the hardest messages I’ve ever had to write. As you all know by now, last night the Board accepted my resignation as superintendent of the Fort Worth ISD. After 40 years working for this District – as a teacher, coach, administrator, and finally as superintendent — it’s nearly impossible to summarize all I am feeling right now. So I am going to choose to focus on one overwhelming feeling – gratitude.”
