The plan to remove Dr. Suzanne Freeman as superintendent of the Trussville City School System began weeks ago. On Monday morning, it became official as board members voted to nullify Freeman's 4 year contract.
On Monday morning, they wasted little time in voting for her removal. Board President Bill Roberts had said previously that the motivation for ending Freeman's contract was the recent departure of Trussville High School Principal Zack Barnes. Barnes was the 5 principal in 7 years to leave Trussville High.
Freeman steps away from the job, but remains a part of the system. For the next 2 years, Dr. Freeman will have the title of 'administrative officer.' She will be making $600,000 over the next two years. Dr. Freeman will also work from home, but her duties are not specified in the agreement.
