Even though he acknowledges he will have plenty to do as Springfield’s interim school superintendent, Bob Leming may not spend five days a week on the job.
Leming’s work with the district is structured to allow him to keep collecting the teachers’ pension he began receiving when he retired in 2004. Leming says he can still receive his $108,000 annual pension if he works 100 days or less in the school year. So he says that in his current job as the district’s human resources director, he is only working three to four days a week… and says he may often maintain that four-day-a-week schedule during his three-month stint as superintendent.
Leming will hold the post from April till June while the board searches for a permanent replacement for Walter Milton.
