Superintendent of Schools Mary Conway is getting a 2.25 percent raise.
Conway and the Board of Education on Monday agreed to the increase after a short executive session and public vote. William Nicholson, David Kemp, Kyle Percy, Laura Bush and Anne Fischer all voted in favor of it.
Terri Goldich and Michelle Arn did not vote for the raise.
Amarjit Buttar attended the meeting, but had to leave early and was not present for the vote.
The increase is to Conway's base salary of $156,800 and is for the current fiscal year, retroactive to when it began on July 1.
Conway works on a three-year evergreen contract, meaning she is eligible for a renewal each year.
The way Conway is evaluated will change under the new contract. Rather than relying solely on the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education guidelines, Conway will be evaluated according to Professional Leaders Standards, on goals set by the local leadership team (Conway sets the goals with the school board) and with input from staff members, parents and the community.
