LUHS District Administrator Offered Contract
The Lakeland Union High School board of education has offered a one-year contract to District Administrator Rob Way, who is also the director of curriculum.
The board met in closed session Monday, coming out in open session to vote 7-1 to make the offer. Voting yes were Barry Seidel, Jim Wescott, Gary Smith, Heidi Fink, Barb Peck, Matt Kock and Shari Nimsgern. Pam Carroll voted no.
The motion also lists “performance expectations and a review timeline as identified in closed session.” What those expectations are has not been released. Under state law, Way has until March 31 to accept or reject the offer.
The board on Jan. 11 issued a preliminary notice of non-renewal to Way. Under Way’s initial two-year contract, he was to spend 40 percent of his time on district administrative duties and the remainder as director of curriculum. The contract offered an annual salary of $138,738 for the first year (2019-20).
In an earlier board meeting that month, the board renewed Greg Kopp’s one-year contract. The director of business services will be paid an annual salary of $115,940, the same as this year’s contract, which expires June 30. There were six “aye” votes with one abstention. Two board members were absent.
