Groundskeeper Willie-SMUHSD- More "retirements"- Why pay the legal expenses?

Superintendent Kevin Skelly's “retirement” from the SMUHSD is scheduled for May 2022.

Skelly recently negotiated a contract extension at $329k per year + benefits and retirement to 2024. That is some serious cash (and retirement perks) to leave on the table.

On another (more hidden) note, the SMUHSD Board agenda shows that Deputy Superintendent Kirk Black's Executive Assistant (30+ years) has also decided to retire in May 2022. (coincidence?)

Skelly, Black, and the Mills Principal are still scheduled to face an Assistant Attorney General in the coming months regarding the suspension of their credentials. They will then be in SM Superior Court for the Mills High School legal suite.

The SMUHSD is now not only paying a separate legal firm to defend it in court, but also a high priced special counsel to defend them in front of the Attorney General.

If Skelly is gone, then what is the point of paying for the defense of the others who won't be around anyways?
