Superintendent Kevin Smith will receive $20,000 in incentive compensation for successfully meeting metrics stipulated by the Board of Education this past school year.
While negotiating Smith’s contract, the Board of Education’s Business Operations Committee decided a certain portion of his compensation would be incentive-based.
“When Dr. Smith came on board last year, we decided to base a percentage of his compensation on a series of performance-based metrics,” Christine Finkelstein said during the board’s July 23 meeting.
In coming up with the superintendent’s merit plan, the committee first identified the following key components of the district’s mission statement and values:
- Whole child.
- Student outcomes.
- Fiscal accountability.
- Human resources.
