Former West Ada School District Superintendent Linda Clark has reached a settlement with the district in connection with her highly-publicized resignation last fall.

Idaho Education News reports that settlement is for $160,000.  That money will not come out of the district budget but rather from an insurance group that covers local government entities.

The settlement puts an end to any talks of legal action between Clark, the district and the West Ada Board of Trustees.

According to Idaho Education News the $160,000 payment is less than Clark stood to receive had she not resigned in October.  Under her contract she would have received a salary of $143,475 plus benefits totaling around $30,000.
