Bettsville BOE OKs settlement with Luhring

The Bettsville Board of Education approved a settlement agreement with its former treasurer Wednesday evening.
The board passed a resolution Wednesday approving a financial settlement with Roger Luhring, who had been on unpaid leave since February. He will be paid a total of $26,300 for salary, health insurance benefits, unused vacation days, sick leave and a non-compensation payment, said Board President Michelle Davis.
The agreement states that “Luhring is to resign from his contract and employment by the board of education effective June 30.” Davis said he has seven days to revoke the agreement. If not, it will take effect on Wednesday. He will be paid what is left on his contract.
His contract began in 2010 and was set to expire in 2015. He had worked in the district since 2008.
Luhring was placed on paid administrative leave after Davis served him with a letter advising of 14 charges against him.
The charges against Luhring involved insubordination like not following board policies, not returning phone calls, failure to correctly balance accounts, failure to make payments and other violations. He was later moved to unpaid leave.
