TIFFIN — Gary Barber, the superintendent of Tiffin City Schools who was charged with OVI in November, has resigned from the district, effective July 31.
Barber will remain on paid medical leave through July 31 and will receive a $20,000 payment for longevity, according to a settlement agreement reached by the district and Barber.
Barber, whose salary was most recently listed as $180,000 annually by the Ohio Treasurer’s Office, was pulled over and charged with OVI in the Marion area on Friday, November 29.
Robert Boes, assistant superintendent, was named interim superintendent while Barber is on medical leave.
Barber was previously found guilty of OVI in 2017, shortly after being hired by Tiffin City Schools.
Barber is due in court for a pre-trial hearing on February 5, 2020 at 9:30 AM at Marion Municipal Court.
This is the second time Barber has been on medical leave this year. Previously, he was on leave from April 17 until June 3.
