Seattle School Board President Steve Sundquist said Friday the board is considering firing Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson or buying out her contract in light of a report's findings that she didn't do more to stop misuse of public money in a district contracting program.

In an appearance before The Seattle Times editorial board, Sundquist said the findings in the newly released report "certainly undermine my confidence in the effectiveness of the management."

Sundquist declined comment when asked if the school board was in buyout discussions with Goodloe-Johnson, but said she is working with an attorney.

"All options are on the table," Sundquist said.

Goodloe-Johnson could not be reached for comment.
