After a recent snafu involving a well-meaning board chairwoman Angela Colbenson who followed school legal counsel advice, the district has officially approved Superintendent Ehler’s contract for another two years. Ehler’s past contract expired June 30 while the district waited to settle teacher contracts. Per legal advice, and to satisfy a Minnesota legal statute, Colbenson authorized Ehler to continue working past the expiration date under his current contract terms. This stirred up disapproval from board member Taylor Peterson, who noted decisions made regarding a superintendent’s contract must be made by the board as a whole. Peterson also voiced several concerns over the terms of the contract.

During a closed session meeting on October 21, the board discussed the contract once again. A two-year contract was approved, with an optional extension for the third year being offered if both parties mutually agree. Salary was increased 1.11 percent for 2013-2014 and 3.06 percent for 2014-2015, $103,682 and $107,182 respectively. Should the option for a third year be approved, salary would increase 2.59 percent. This contract is begun retroactively July 1, 2013 and will end June 30, 2015. Notice of renewal or nonrenewal will be agreed upon by December 15, 2014.

The package increases include salary, health, life, dental and LTD insurances, 403b contribution, teacher retirement and payroll taxes, as well as providing a $5,000 annual contribution to a Health Care Savings Account. According to a district press release, “The salary benefits package was determined using data from 12 area school districts to assist with the salary negotiation process. The average area superintendent salary is $111,151.00. An examination of duty days, insurance costs, severance payments and leave arrangement was performed to determine comparability with area schools.”

Peterson noted displeasure at the July meeting in regards to some of these benefits, particularly insurance coverage and time off. According to the contract, the district will provide the superintendent family coverage health, dental and vision coverage, under the district group plan at the expense of the district. In addition, the district will provide a group term life plan providing $100,000 of coverage, long-term disability, and liability insurance.

The new contract allows 20 working days of annual paid vacation each contract year, with unused vacation .....
