MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Former Montgomery County Public School Superintendent Dr. Carlinda Purcell has a new job in the state of Pennsylvania. The Reading School District hired Purcell to be that district's new superintendent in an 8-0 vote, according to television station WFMZ-TV.

WFMZ reports that Purcell will receive a five-year contract that will run through 2017. The value of the contract was not immediately known.

Purcell and the Montgomery Public School Board parted ways in 2006 after a long, very public fight to remove her from the school board. Purcell ultimately tendered her resignation. In return, Purcell received more than $279,000.

That money was equal to one year of her salary ($155,000), $56,000 in unused benefits and an extra $68,400 for expenses. MPS also agreed to purchase Purcell's home, valued at $327,500. The house was then put back on the market.

WSFA 12 News has reached out to the Reading School District for comment on Purcell's employment, but the District has not made any statement.
