CENTRAL — The Central Community School Board on Monday unanimously agreed to renew Superintendent Michael Faulk’s contract unchanged for three more years, meaning he can stay in the job through Dec. 31, 2015.
Faulk, the only superintendent Central has had since it started in summer 2007, said he will make about $115,000 in salary in 2012. As before, Faulk’s salary goes up 3 percent every year. His contract, before the vote, was to expire on Dec. 31, 2012.
The School Board has consistently given Faulk strong evaluations. The board approved extending Faulk’s contract without discussion.
“We’re very pleased with the significant progress our schools are making,” said Board President James Gardner after the meeting. “We feel he’s doing a great job.”
Central’s district performance score has grown each year, and the school system is ranked seventh academically in the state.
Gardner said in light of the state’s new letter grading system for schools, the board and Faulk are discussing new performance goals for him for 2012.
“We’d like to be better and better,” he said.
