MILFORD, Conn.—The Milford Board of Education has approved a settlement that will end the employment of embattled Superintendent of Schools Harvey Polansky, who is facing misdemeanor sexual assault charges involving two female principals.

The board voted 7-3 in favor of the deal Monday night. Officials say they won't release details of the agreement until Thursday, because federal law gives Polansky until midnight Wednesday to reject the deal he signed last week.

The agreement would end the board's termination hearing against Polansky, who's been on paid leave since November.

Polansky was charged in January with inappropriately touching the principals. He has pleaded not guilty.

School officials, Polansky and his lawyer have agreed not to comment on the deal.
