Fired Superintendent Bill Gilhaus and two top assistants who also lost their jobs in February will be paid through the end of the fiscal year, June 30, according to a resolution passed by the school board.

The board fired Gilhaus, Lana Gerber and Christina Ziegler in a controversial 4-3 vote at a meeting Feb. 27.

The resolution, which passed unanimously May 12, calls for the district to pay all contractual obligations and benefits, including any payments that had not been made since Feb. 27.
