EAA Chancellor receives severance after resigning

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The former chancellor of the embattled Education Achievement Authority has received a 74-thousand dollar severance package.

John Covington received the severance, even though he stepped down from the 325-thousand dollar per year position on June 17th to care for his sick mother. According to reports, Covington signed a seven-page separation agreement the day before he left that agreed to pay him just over 74-thousand dollars in unused time and two week's pay.

Hired in September 2011, Covington has been besieged with controversy over test scores and spending during his tenure.
