School board eyes contract extension for superintendent

From page A3 | July 09, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A yearlong extension to 2017 for Superintendent Kris Corey’s three-year contact with the Fairfield-Suisun School District goes before trustees Thursday.

Her current contract ends June 30, 2016. The proposal extends the agreement to June 30, 2017. The pact lists Corey’s salary at $216,300 a year.

Changes in the contract include the school district contributing $14,500 yearly – rather than $10,000 – to a tax-sheltered instrument of the superintendent’s choice. A provision for the first year of the agreement – that the district pay up $4,500 for executive leadership coaching services – ends.

Corey began as superintendent in 2013.

Trustees formally evaluate the superintendent in writing at least once a year. The review should be completed by July 1 of each year, according to the contract.

The pact also ends providing the superintendent with paid cellphone service for school district business and states she’ll receive the same level of technology provided to other management employees.

The school board meets at 6 p.m. in the central office board room at 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.

    See the item "Staff proposes nut-free policy for Fairfield-Suisun schools." I hoped there was a connection!

    Her contract is not up for two years. What has she done that would make the Board want to extend her contract now? Would it be a great loss if she left at the end of her current contract? Could someone please explain the rush to keep her on? I just don't get it.

    Alf: Superintendents usually get multi-year contracts. The way this generally works is the original multi-year contract gets extended by a year on an annual basis as long as the board is happy. When they get unhappy, they simply send a message by not voting to extend the current contract beyond its sunset date. If they are really, really unhappy of course, they can buy out the existing contract and look for a replacement right away.

    Mr. Smith. I understand how this works. And my question remains. She still has two years remaining on a contract. What has she done to deserve an extension now? They could extend it next year while it has one year remaining if they thought she was doing a bang up job. And from what I have read lately, she's not. Extending her now, locks them in for three years and will cost more to relieve her of her duties if they desire.

    Alf: If you understand how this works, then your question should be put to the board. If they extend the contract, that would seem to say they are reasonably happy with Ms. Corey's performance.
