It will no longer be required by the Escambia County Board of Education to renew the superintendent’s contract every two years following action during last Thursday’s meeting.
The board agreed to extend the superintendent’s contract term from two years to four years after first notifying current superintendent Billy Hines of his contract’s expiration.
After an in-depth discussion, a motion extending the contract term two years was made and unanimously approved.
Also discussed was the procedure by which the superintendent would receive a raise. The board voted to use the Alabama Professional Education Personnel Evaluation (PEPE) Program to evaluate the superintendent’s performance and not award a raise unless raises are awarded to all teachers.
In other business, the board:
Escambia County High School, Escambia County Middle School and W. Neal High School each scored perfect. Flomaton, Pollard-McCall, W.S. Neal Elementary School and W.S. Neal Middle School each scored 99, Huxford scored 98 and A.C. Moore and Rachel Patterson each scored 97.
According to Rodgers’ letter, the lowest score of any lunchroom this year was a 96.
