Baltimore County Public Schools has released the contract of former Chief Communications Officer Phyllis Reese, who was reassigned under Superintendent S. Dallas Dance.
The two-year contract was signed by Reese and former Superintendent Joe Hairston on July 7, 2011 and expires on June 30, 2013. The contract stipulates that the superintendent can not terminate Reese's employment for any reason except gross misconduct.
If the superintendent does attempt to terminate the contract for a reason other than gross misconduct, Reese would still be paid the full salary and benefits of the position. Patch previously reported her salary to be $142,549 a year.
School system spokesman Charles Herndon would not confirm where Reese is working at this time, saying he can not comment on personnel matters. But, again as previously reported, the schools' website has the chief communications job listed as available.
