Kansas college and its president part ways

President steps aside

FORT SCOTT, Kan. (AP) – A southeast Kansas college is looking for a new president after parting ways with the incumbent by what officials called mutual agreement.

Clayton Tatro had been the subject of a recent no-confidence vote by faculty of Fort Scott Community College.

Tatro was not present this week when the school’s board of trustees approved an agreement to end his presidency, which was scheduled to expire in June 2017. Tatro had served as the college’s president for seven years.

The college’s attorney said details of the termination agreement are confidential. The Tribune reports Tatro had a base salary of $104,000.

Trustee Dick Hedges gave up his seat on the board to serve as interim president.
