SAN BERNARDINO COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT noncommercial KVCR-F and PBS affiliate KVCR-TV/SAN BERNARDINO-RIVERSIDE, CA Pres. LARRY CIECALONE has resigned from the stations, effective MAY 31st, reports the SAN BERNARDINO SUN.
CIECALONE's resignation, which will see him paid his $172,624 salary and his retirement and benefits contributions through the end of the year, follows his being placed on paid administrative leave in MARCH. A settlement agreement cites "an actual dispute" between CIECALONE and the board, saying that it is in the parties' best interest for him to resign.
The parties are not discussing the situation, and the settlement includes an agreement by the district not to put a termination notice in CIECALONE's file and for CIECALONE to not make disparaging statements about the district and its employees.
