RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A settlement between the Washoe County School Board of Trustees and Superintendent Pedro Martinez could come as soon as next week.

According to the district's outside Attorney Kent Robison, the Board of Trustees will vote to offer Superintendent Martinez a $25,000 settlement in his lawsuit against the district. Robison said this is an offer of judgment, meaning it gives Martinez incentive to settle his $1 million case.

The settlement will be voted on at next Tuesday's board meeting. If approved by the Board of Trustees, Martinez will have ten days to either accept or decline the offer.

At a board meeting last week, Martinez said he is open to moving beyond this situation. He wants an applogy from the Board of Trustees regarding him being relieved of his duties on July 22.
