Sandusky Schools officials announced the abrupt resignation of treasurer Kevin Robertson on Monday.
Robertson, who has been with the district since 2008, has accepted a position as treasurer of Bay Village Schools, near Cleveland. His new job begins Aug. 1.
Bay Village Schools officially hired him Monday to replace Deborah Putnam, who will retire after 25 years with her district, according to its website.
“(Robertson) is a good, solid administrator and colleague, and he’s been one of the best I’ve worked with as a superintendent,” superintendent Eugene Sanders said. “He has very good fiscal and financial skills, and he’s leaving the district in a sound financial position. I certainly wish him great success in his future professional endeavors”
Robertson will receive $120,000 per year at Bay Village Schools, according to his new three-year contract.
His current three-year contract with Sandusky Schools, awarded this past year, was set to expire in August 2016. He received about $104,000 per year.
Robertson’s resignation was not listed on Monday’s Sandusky school board meeting agenda.
Board president Thomas Patterson briefly announced the departure at the end of the meeting, when board members typically discuss “new or unfinished business.” He wished Robertson well.
Board members will now meet 4 p.m. Thursday to officially accept Robertson’s resignation.
After a closed-door meeting, they will then provide updates about the district’s impending search for a new treasurer, Sanders said.
