(Vancouver, WA) -- The Evergreen School Board of Directors is terminating Superintendent Mike Merlino's contract. Board members voted to terminate Merlino's contract yesterday. He was under investigation, but the board didn't say why he was being investigated. The board released a statement saying that after a preliminary investigation they decided there was enough evidence to terminate Merlino for cause, but they made the termination "no cause" to prevent lengthy litigation. He'll be paid one year of salary.
