Neb. teacher will resign as part of district deal.

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) -- A chemistry teacher at North Platte Community College has settled with the administration and will resign.

The college's lawyer says Deming Pan violated federal privacy laws by giving student information to an accreditation agency.

The college says Pan talked to the agency because she was concerned about the college's academic standards. She shared those concerns during a closed meeting with the Mid-Plains Community College District governors, who were considering her termination.

Under the settlement, she'll be paid through the end of her contract on June 30 and get an extra $10,000. She'll also get a letter of recommendation.

The board voted 8-1 to approve the settlement.
