Broward School Board Votes To Move Forward With Exit Deal For General Counsel Barbara Myrick

BROWARD (CBSMiami) – The Broward School Board held a special meeting Thursday morning to discuss the terms of the exit deal for its general counsel.

Barbara Myrick, the school district's top lawyer, was arrested along with Superintendent Robert Runcie last month on charges related to a grand jury investigating the aftermath of the Parkland shooting.

The board voted to go forward with Myrick's proposal of separation by mutual agreement.

"A separation with cause has tremendous liability for this district. Separation without cause costs the district more money than her retirement," said Laurie Levinson with the Broward School Board.
