Published 2:26 pm Monday, March 12, 2012

Demopolis High School principal Leon Clark agreed to remain at the school Monday, bringing closure to a tumultuous 14 day period.

Clark signed and delivered a three year contract well in advance of Monday’s noon deadline, exactly two weeks after the original contract offer and subsequent expiration that set off a public firestorm.

The contract okayed by Clark extends his original deal, which was set to expire in June, through the 2015 academic year.

Two weeks ago, Clark was offered a three year extension that included 14 modifications. Clark refused to sign the offer. Those modifications were removed in the latest offer.

Clark’s $95,000 annual salary is unchanged, however he is eligible for raises when awarded by the State of Alabama.
