Incoming Springfield school superintendent Jennifer Gill will start the job on May 1st, under the terms of the contract to be voted on by the school board this week.
The contract calls for Gill to make $195,000 a year… around $25,000 less than former superintendent Walter Milton made. And Gill won’t be taking district health benefits… the contract says she is already covered under her husband’s policy.
The three-year contract is on the agenda for the next school board meeting on Tuesday. The board meeting was pushed back one day this week because of the Martin Luther King holiday.
