A controversial education leader could resign from office as a result of a lawsuit against her and the Ocean View School District.
Opponents of Barbara Boskovich spent nearly a year trying to recall her from the school board, but ultimately it appears that it will be her battle with Harbour View principal Roni Ellis that led to Boskovich's downfall. The school board member is said to have agreed to resign from her post as part of a settlement agreement with Ellis.
In May, Ellis sued Boskovich, the Ocean View School District and former superintendent Jim Tarwater, alleging defamation and harassment. Ellis said she reached a settlement with Boskovich and Ocean View School District in January. Under the deal, Boskovich would agree to voluntarily resign from the school board and the school district would pay Ellis $250,000, Ellis said.
