Supt. Scales puts his house on the market

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)- The Chattanooga home of Hamilton County School Supt. Dr. Jim Scales is on the market, just a week after he announced he would accept a buyout from the School Board.

Although a formal Board vote is still a week away, Dr. Scales and his wife Cynthia have apparently decided to move out of their half-million dollar home in the Mountain Shadows area. 

The home, at 9401 Royal Mountain Drive, is listed by Linda Brock Homes at a price of $495,000.  The description of the home can be found here

It has five bedrooms and six baths, with 5,148 square feet.

Dr. Scales' contract runs through June 2012, but the Board is expected to approve a buyout of his final year at a meeting on May 26.  The buyout, including vacation days and insurance, is estimated to cost some $265,000.  At a hastily called news conference on May 10, Dr. Scales said he expected his last day on the job to be July 1st.  He moved to the district from Dallas when he was selected for the job in 2006.

His administrative assistant said that Dr. Scales was out of town Wednesday and was unavailable for comment.
