School board calls meeting to discuss pay raise, superintendent’s contract
The Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education called a meeting for Thursday to discuss the board’s salary, a personnel issue and Superintendent Dr. Lynn Moody’s contract.
“The personnel issue is something that we want to try to act on as soon as possible because it relates to a recommendation being brought to the board,” said Chairman Josh Wagner.
The board will also discuss changes made to Moody’s contract at a called meeting just prior to its December meeting, where two new board members were sworn in.
“We probably should have waited to have that conversation,” Wagner said, adding that the board was advised to revisit the matter with the new board members.
“We need to act as soon as we can to make sure we are in compliance with the state statute,” he said.
The board will also vote to accept or deny a pay raise that was approved by county commissioners Nov. 17.
Board members currently receive $200 each month, and the chairman receives an additional $100 a month stipend.
The raise would bring all board members up to a base pay of $350 each month. The chairman will continue to receive the additional $100 stipend.
The board will meet Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at the Long Street Office, 110 S. Long St. in East Spencer.
