News 8 has learned the details of the severance package DeSoto Independent School District gave a superintendent who worked just one day.

Dr. Kathy Augustine was given just over $156,000.

Combine that with the $31,000 she was paid while on leave, and that is the equivalent of one year's pay.

The school board agreed to let Kathy Augustine resign after allegations she was involved in a cheating scandal in Atlanta followed her to Texas.
