A top Twin Rivers Unified School District administrator resigned this week and will receive nearly $175,000 on his way out, the district confirmed today.
Rob Ball, associate superintendent of business support services, submitted his "voluntary resignation" to the Twin Rivers Board of Trustees, which accepted it on Thursday, according to a statement. Ball at one point served as the district's interim superintendent.
Ball will receive $174,570.60, the remainder of the salary he would have been paid through the end of the current school year, the district said. Twin Rivers students just started school eight days ago.
Ball, 63, most recently served as associate superintendent of business support services. In May 2012, he ran the district for several months while a search was under way for a new superintendent.
This month, he was in the news as one of three district administrators who have Twin Rivers paying their share of public pension contributions, a practice that state leaders have banned for new government employees hired starting this year.
No reason was announced for the resignation, and Ball could not be reached for comment.
The district's statement said Ball "is recognized as a talented and well-respected professional, both in our district and throughout the state. He has been a leader in our district since its inception, and he has served our staff and students tirelessly.
"We wish him great success with his future endeavors, and we are confident that his work will continue to make a positive difference for the students in our public schools."
