College of DuPage board to redo approval of leader's controversial buyout

After approving a controversial severance package last week for College of DuPage President Robert Breuder, the school's board of trustees announced Monday that it would meet Wednesday to deal with the contract once more, suggesting that there was a problem with how officials handled it initially.

The board of trustees will meet in a special session to "clarify a procedural motion" to approve the contract "addendum" with Breuder, according to a brief statement from the state's largest community college. The board had approved the agreement 6-1 on Thursday without publicly releasing terms until after the vote.

The Tribune had obtained a draft of the severance package before the meeting and published the details, including that Breuder will get a lump sum payout of $762,868 when he retires March 31, 2016.  Read more in the Chicago Tribune.
