Former Wentzville School District Superintendent Danielle Tormala is set to receive more than $1 million in a buyout of her contract.

Tormala, who recently resigned, has reportedly agreed not to pursue any claims against the district and its board for "compensatory damages, emotional distress, loss of reputation, humiliation, embarrassment, costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees." The district and board also agreed not to pursue legal action against Tormala.
