Sherri Killins stepped down after it was revealed that she was making $200,000 a year while living in New Haven, Conn., and is taking part in a training program to become a superintendent in Ware, all this while her day job and office were based in Boston.
    
According to the Boston Herald, Killins will serve as a consultant with full salary for the next three months and will be paid unused vacation and sick time.
