At a special Sequim School District Board of Directors meeting on June 26, the board came to an agreement on the contract for interim superintendent Dr. Rob Clark.
Clark, who was in attendance for the meeting, starts his lead administrator role in Sequim July 8 after finishing duties at the Milton-Freewater (Ore.) School District, though he will be in town for several days to start meeting key district staff and catching up on the current state of the district.
The contract, which runs through June 30, 2020, was agreed to unanimously by the three board members present, with directors Heather Short and Robin Henrikson absent.
Clark’s base salary will be $155,000.
In addition to his pay, Clark will receive 30 vacation days, 10 of which he can cash out if he’s unable to utilize them. The district will also provide $800 per month for the duration of Clark’s contract to a tax-deffered retirement plan.
Other benefits include a $600-per-month travel reimbursement to help cover costs of commuting from Port Ludlow and various meetings and functions across the region, and a $50-per-month cell phone reimbursement.
