Gooding Superintendent OK’s Separation Agreement Release

From the Twin Falls Times-News

GOODING • Superintendent Heather Williams said Friday she has given the Gooding County School District permission to make her separation agreement with the district public.

District officials could not be reached, however, because the school district operates on a four-day week and is closed Fridays.

The Times-News filed a lawsuit Feb. 10 against the district after it refused to fill two public records requests for copies of the separation agreements with Williams and Gooding High School Principal Chris Comstock.

Comstock resigned from the district Jan. 14, and Williams resigned two days later, saying she will remain superintendent until July 1.

Friday, Williams said she had been at a middle school basketball game Thursday evening and was not served with the lawsuit. The school board clerk was served, she said.

Williams had announced Thursday that she won’t seek the state schools superintendent job, which she’d been considering. That decision wasn’t related to the Times-News lawsuit, she said, but rather because “I don’t want to miss out on my kids.”
