The Washoe County School Board voted Tuesday to buyout Superintendent Pedro Martinez in exchange for him leaving.
After more than an hour of public outrage, the school board voted to end the long debacle with the superintendent that began this summer when the board illegally fired him.
The agreement was hashed out in a long mediation overseen by a district judge and received final approval in a 5-2 vote at the board's public meeting.
But Martinez says this wasn't the way he thought it would end.
"We went in asking for an apology. Frankly, I wanted to stay"
