NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Soon-to-be former New Haven Public Schools Superintendent Garth Harries will be off the job later this year.

In the separation agreement News 8 obtained today, we learned Harries will continue to be paid through the end of next June and serve as a consultant for the district. Harries contract goes through late December, but he could be off the job a month earlier if an interim superintendent is named.

Harries makes just over $200,000 a year. The agreement also says Harries will be paid for 33 days of vacation and the chairperson of the school board will offer future employers a letter of recommendation for him.
