PARCHMENT (WKZO) -- The Parchment School district has issued their statements about a severance agreement with former Athletic Director John Thompson, but we don’t know a lot more now than we did before.

It only says that some sort of agreement was reached and Thompson has resigned.Thompson has been on unpaid leave since last May when he was arrested for drunk driving and fleeing and eluding police. Charges which resulted in a 45-day jail sentence.

Was there some sort of buy out or were other concessions made? We may never know. Their letter to the media says “There is no other information available at this time”.
