TUCSON - There's been a major development regarding the status of the superintendent of the Arizona School for the Deaf and the Blind. Robert Hill is apparently on his way out. Hill has been offered a settlement to leave his $125,000 a year job.
The News 4 Tucson Investigators have learned that the State Board of Education approved the offer, following a recommendation for the settlement from the Attorney General's office. There's no word on the amount of the settlement that will be paid to Hill.
Hill's job performance has come under fire from ASDB teachers and alumni. Some say he's made inappropriate remarks to colleagues, and is insensitive to the deaf community. Hill has been on paid leave since October.
Hill has refused repeated interview requests from the News 4 Tucson Investigators to respond to the complaints. We will keep you posted on whether he accepts this settlement offer.
