Hillsborough County School Board Deciding MaryEllen Elia’s Fate

Update: Elia’s contract has been terminated.

TAMPA – Hillsborough School Board Members April Griffin and Susan Valdes have doubled down on there quest to terminate Superintendent MaryEllen Elia the Florida Superintendent of the Year 2014.

If terminated, Elia would be due a severance package of $1.1 million that Hillsborough County would have to foot. Griffin promises that would be a problem because they would hire someone for less than Elia’s $439,000 total salary and make it up in the long run.

Griffin has never heard of the old saying, “You get what you pay for.”
