During a meeting held on Tuesday, Feb. 12, School District 205 Board members voted unanimously during the meeting to adjust the base annual salary of District 205 Superintendent David Moyer for the current school year. The board voted to increase Moyer’s base salary for the 2018-19 school year from about $233,000 to about $241,500. The increase will be payable in equal installments over the remaining regular pay periods for the current school year.

Board member Chris Blum stated some of the district’s successes since the board hired Moyer almost four years ago. Blum also said that transition in leadership positions can be extremely disruptive. Board member Jim Collins said the board hired Moyer at a submarket rate of pay four years ago. The increase, Collins said, puts Moyer closer to the average salary for a superintendent in a district the size and caliber of District 205.

Contract extended, base salary increased

Moments after approving the raise for Moyer in the current school year, the board voted unanimously to adopt a resolution approving a multi-year contract for Moyer from July 1 of this year until June 30, 2023. The new contract replaces Moyer’s previous contract, which was not set to expire until June 30, 2020. Collins said it’s been the board’s recent practice to offer a new contract to the superintendent one year before the existing contract expires.

The new contract provides Moyer with a base annual salary of nearly $250,000.
