BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

New information was released on Friday concerning Berkeley County School District.

Finding a new superintendent for the district could cost just as much as former superintendent Brenda Blackburn's annual salary, according to the documents.

The new information came from documents that were released from Berkeley County School District under a request.

The documents focus on Blackburn's contract with the district, an agreement focused on finding a superintendent replacement, and Blackburn's separation agreement after her resignation.

Blackburn's resignation surfaced after former BCSD chief financial officer Brantley Thomas allegedly took $400,000 from the district.

The former superintendent resigned in March of 2017 during an FBI investigation of the financial fraud by Thomas.

Blackburn was hired on Aug. 13 2015, according to documents, with an annual base salary of $210,000.

Blackburn's severance agreement was payed in the amount of $76,800, according to the documents.
