Administrative contracts approved

Thursday, March 20, 2008

Clay Community School Corporation made two administrative adjustments Thursday night during a school board special session at North Clay Middle School.

Superintendent Dan Schroeder recommended a one-year extension of administrative contracts, including his and the school board's contracts.

The board voted 5-1 to approve the contract extension. Len Fischer voted no, and Ted Jackson was not present.

Schroeder also named the new assistant superintendent, Kimberly Tucker.

Tucker went through two rounds of interviews for the position and will begin July 1 with the corporation.

Currently, Tucker is the assistant principal at Avon Middle School, in Avon, Ind.

She will receive an initial two-year contract, with a salary of $95,500 per year. The board approved her contract.

Many of the costs associated with Tuckers contract will be subsidized by grants. She will be the new Title I coordinator, as well as in charge of curriculum development, staff development, adequate yearly progress, Public Law 221 and ISTEP+ testing.

The next regular school board meeting will be Thursday, April 10, in the North Clay Middle School media center, at 7:30 p.m.

I don't get it. I know it says she will be largely paid with grants but that is a chuck of money! Will the public be as upset by her salary as they are by the updating of the buildings??

I thought the board decided two years ago that there was no need for an assistant superintendent?
