Manatee School Board to discuss superintendent contract
The Manatee County School Board will meet Monday evening to agree on the details of new superintendent Rick Mills’ contract.
School board chair Karen Carpenter said the contract will be “tightened up” in comparison to former superintendent Tim Mcgonegal’s contract.
“It incorporates concerns that were expressed at the public meeting last Wednesday,” Carpenter said.
Concerns included the county’s financial situation and the underachievement of third graders, especially those who come from families living at or below the poverty level.
Topics in the contract include salary, compensation and other benefits and conditions.
Rick Mills expressed the importance of building rapport with senior staff and coming to an agreement on embracing and utilizing data to meet district goals.
“My goal is to create a shared vision of accomplishments for students and student learning,” Mills said.
The contract is available for viewing online on manateeschools.net under the agenda for Monday’s meeting.
The meeting will be held at 5:45 p.m. at School Board of Manatee County, 215 Manatee Ave. W.
