The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) Board of Trustees is set to vote tonight on a new employment contract with Superintendent Kirsten Vital that would maintain her $204,225 per year salary, and add 3% increases and $15,000 annual performance bonuses for four years, beginning July 1 2011 and ending June 30, 2015.
The contract provides a 3% annual step increase, and could provide an additional $10,944 per year in contributions to medical benefits, depending on the plan the Superintendent selects. Trustees Ron Mooney and Margie Sherratt submitted the proposal to the board.
Ms. Vital’s total compensation next year could top $236,000 depending on the health benefits she picks, and whether or not she meets her performance goals. The contract is online here.
Alameda residents will soon receive their fall property tax bills, which include an AUSD parcel tax passed earlier this year that significantly increases school parcel taxes – some homeowners will see their tax double.
Tonight’s meeting begins with a closed-session meeting at 4:30 p.m., at the Alameda High School Little Theater at the corner of Oak & Walnut, 2200 Central Avenue – Alameda, CA 94501. According to the agenda, at 6:30 p.m., the board will reconvene to a public session in the Alameda High School Cafeteria.
