Hall County Schools Superintendent Will Schofield’s contract has been extended for another three years.
The Board of Education members voted unanimously to approve the new contract during a work session on Monday, Nov. 11. The contract is July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2022.
Schofield is in his 15th year with the school district.
“The system is going well,” Nath Morris, board chairman, said. “We’re keeping him, and we’re glad to have him.”
The contract calls for a base salary of $238,645.38 for the current school year.
Morris said Schofield’s salary will increase in the next two years at a percentage equal to the average percentage increase received by teachers.
“There’s a lot of prayer, a lot of thought,” Schofield said about the contract. “The 28,000 students at this district deserve to have the right man or woman leading and moving the district forward. I’m very blessed to be here, and I look forward to more time in this incredible school district.”
