IPS board, new superintendent reach contract agreement

Vote scheduled on contract Aug. 9

INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Public School board reached a contract agreement with its new superintendent Friday.

Lewis Ferebee signed a three-year contract with a one-year trial period.

The contract states that either party can walk away from the agreement during the first year with no consequences if they're unsatisfied with how things are going.

Because of criticism over former superintendent Eugene White's buyout clause, Ferebee will only get one year's salary, not the full salary if he leaves.

A community meeting will be held Aug. 2 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the contract.

The board will vote on the contract Aug. 9.
