Summary: The Board completed the evaluation of the Superintendent with a satisfactory evaluation for the 2021-22 school year. The Board wishes to extend the Superintendent's term of employment and to increase his compensation in proportion to the salary increases negotiated with District employees. The Second Amended Employment Agreement is hereby presented for Board approval. The proposed amendment increases the Superintendent's salary by $7,000 and issues supplemental benefits equivalent to the on-schedule salary increase of 10.5% negotiated with bargaining groups. No retroactive payments, off-schedule payments, one-time increases, or any other additional stipends are incorporated.

Summary of key amended terms: 1) contract term is extended from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2025; 2) base salary will be $305,000; 3) the District shall contribute $24,290 annually to a supplemental retirement plan; 4) in the event of termination by the District without cause, health benefits shall be extended from six months to one year; however, upon termination, the Superintendent shall be obligated to actively seek comparable employment or retire and any salary or benefits due shall be reduced by the compensation the Superintendent obtains from alternate employment or from retirement.
