Former Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Alan Ziegler

Former Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Scott Alan Ziegler.

When Scott A. Ziegler was fired as Loudoun County Public Schools superintendent on Dec. 6, the termination called for him to receive a year’s salary and benefits in monthly installments which works out to roughly $323,000 in salary.

Ziegler, fired over his mishandling of the 2021 student-on-student sexual assault scandal, was terminated under the “without cause” language of his contract. The contract also includes a “for cause” section. It says Ziegler would receive no salary or benefits if he was convicted of a felony or misdemeanor.
