SAD 17 board extends superintendent's contract [Sun Journal, Lewiston, Maine :: ]

(Sun Journal (Lewiston, ME) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Feb. 04--OXFORD -- The SAD Board of Directors has unanimously extended Superintendent Rick Colpitts contract by one year. The current contract will now expire in 2017.

The vote followed an executive session with Colpitts at Monday night's board meeting during which the board's evaluation of the superintendent was reviewed.

The annual vote does not include discussion of salary or benefits until the contract is renegotiated. Colpitts currently makes an annual salary of $111,661.

Colpitts met with the personnel committee to review a draft of the evaluation prior to the meeting. Then both the Board of Directors and the superintendent met in executive session to discuss the evaluation. Each party participates in the evaluation process, which is done in both ranking and essay form.

The board evaluates the superintendent on issues such as goals and how well they are met. The evaluation is not not considered public record, but rather part of the superintendent's personnel file, Colpitts said.

Superintendents are elected for specific terms, not exceeding five years. The term of office for any superintendent ends on June 30, with the year to be specified by board vote. Statutory law requires all superintendents to be evaluated by the end of each year.

Colpitts was appointed superintendent in 2010, succeeding Mark Eastman who retired after holding the post for 15 years. In May of that year, the directors gave Colpitts a three-year contract with an annual salary of $103,000.

The Board of Directors has voted to extend the contract by one year each of the following years.
