Jenny's contact initially stated he would serve as superintendent through 2016. Bbut on Monday, Fort Bend ISD trustees approved an amendment to his contract that states if he retires at the end of January, he would received a one-year buyout of his contract.
"Although he had no specific date for retirement in mind, after discussions with him, the Board and Dr. Jenney were able to agree on a timeline that allows him to retire in January which serves the Board's future plans for the District," Jim Rice, President of FBISD's Board of Trustees, said in a prepared statement.
"It has been an honor to serve the citizens and children of this community for the past six years," said Dr. Jenney. "After a 39-year career in education, I am looking forward to a break in the action through my retirement. I wish everyone in Fort Bend ISD only the best!"
Dr. Jenney became the District's eighth superintendent in September 2006.
