(WSVN) - Outgoing Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie pleaded not guilty to a perjury charge.

Runcie’s arraignment hearing was held along with General Counsel Barbara Myrick’s arraignment, Wednesday.

Neither attended the hearing in person.

Runcie entered a written not guilty plea, and the judge entered a not guilty plea on Myrick’s behalf.

Both pleas come one day after Runcie reached a deal with the school board on his separation.

The approved package is worth nearly $750,000.

His last day as superintendent will be Aug. 10.
