The Hall County Board of Education approved a new three-year contract Monday night for Superintendent Will Schofield.
The new contract became effective Jan. 1 and will run through Dec. 31, 2015. Before Monday, Schofield was in the second year of a three-year contract.
The seven-page document outlines Schofield’s duties, pay and perks, such as use of a car and cellphone, and reimbursement for travel expenses.
His annual salary is $177,624, according to system records. The system pays all employee contributions to Social Security, Medicare and the Teacher Retirement System, as well as his health insurance premiums.
“Compensation terms are identical to the previous several years,” Schofield said.
Board members didn’t comment as they unanimously OK’d the contract, but Schofield did.
“It is hard to believe we have spent eight years together, and I look forward to the next three,” he said. “We’ve done a lot of work and we’ve got a lot of work to do, and we’ve got great people in this district and the best kids in the country. So, it’s an honor to work with you and thank you for your vote of confidence.”
