WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee School District has agreed to a settlement that will compensate the high school teacher who presided over a P.E. class in which a student drowned in 2011 while keeping him from returning to his teaching and coaching position at the school.

As part of the separation agreement, the district agrees to employ and pay teacher Ed Knaggs his basic teaching salary for two years, while keeping Knaggs on administrative leave. He’ll be paid about $165,000 over the span of employment, from Sept. 1, 2014, and continuing until Aug. 31, 2016. The settlement was formalized Aug. 4 and signed by Brian Flones, Wenatchee School District superintendent, Knaggs and his attorney, Quentin Batjer.
