Details of the contract offer for the next Eastern Pulaski School Corporation superintendent will be outlined during a public hearing prior to this evening’s school board meeting. The finalist will not be identified by name, but state law requires a public hearing be held to present terms of the offer. In this case they include a base salary of $100,000 for a 260-day year for the next three years. The school board will review the superintendent’s performance annually, and if he or she is evaluated as either highly effective or effective they may grant a base salary increase.

The contract proposal also includes 15 vacation days, three personal days and 10 sick days during the 2013-2014 school year. The superintendent will receive a proposed seven sick days during the 2015-2016 school year. The school corporation will also pay all reasonable expenses for the superintendent to attend state and national conferences with prior board approval. The school corporation will reimburse the superintendent for the annual cost of a cell phone under this proposed contract.
The contract also requires the superintendent to direct his or her full time and attention to the business of the corporation and not to outside activities, unless specifically approved by the school board.

The new superintendent replaces Dr. Robert Klitzman, who retired in June after 26 years with the corporation but agreed to stay on in an interim capacity until his replacement is hired. Klitzman previously told WKVI news the board will finalize the hiring during a special-called meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 20. Klitzman says his last day will be Friday, Aug. 23.
