The Los Alamos School Board officially approved Tuesday Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gene Schmidt’s contract during a regular school board meeting yesterday, giving him a three percent raise in salary.
Starting July 1, Schmidt’s salary will be $149,185.20, an increase from his current salary of $144,840.00.
According to Human Resources Manager and Assistant Superintendent Gerry Washburn, Schmidt will also have the same benefits package as the other employees of the school district, which include 20 days of leave.
The contract is for one year, starting July 1 and ending June 30, 2015.
It’s expected that at the end of this contract, Schmidt will step down and the board will already have a successor lined up.
According to the Los Alamos School Board’s president, Judy Bjarke McKenzie, the board has already begun the search process of looking for Schmidt’s replacement, saying they are already in the process of forming a search committee.
About a month and a half ago, it seemed liked this year would be Schmidt’s last with the Los Alamos Public Schools, as Schmidt and the board seemed to have had a falling out over key issues.
