A year after a financial scandal rocked Seattle Public Schools, the two top officials fired in its aftermath have landed lucrative administrative jobs in high-profile school districts.

And despite the controversy that has followed former Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson to Michigan and her former chief financial officer Don Kennedy to Connecticut, they have the support of their new bosses, according to media reports.

Goodloe-Johnson is the top academic officer for the Education Achievement System, a newly established district focusing mostly on Detroit’s failing schools. It’s led by John Covington, a former Kansas City schools chief.

Kennedy is temporarily running business and facilities functions for Bridgeport Public Schools, a closely scrutinized district being led on an interim basis by Paul Vallas, who formerly served as superintendent in Chicago, Philadelphia and New Orleans.
