Patricia Garcia will be paid $390,000 under separation agreement

Geneva, New York – Under a separation agreement approved by the School Board last week, former Geneva School Superintendent Patricia Garcia will be paid $390,000.
Last September, Garcia was accused of misconduct and was suspended. An investigation found the charges were “unfounded.” The district has released no details of its investigation.
Garcia will receive the money in two equal payments, on or about March 1 and July 1 of this year. According to the agreement “the Board of Education and Dr. Garcia have determined that their vision for the management of the district differs.” The document says the agreement is not an admission by the School Board nor Garcia of any wrongdoing.
Investigator Mark Pettit conducted a probe into the allegations lasting 24 days and costing the district $17,828.
Since September 2021, Kathleen Davis has been serving as interim Superintendent.
