Geneva superintendent gets raise, extra in annuity
Geneva School Superintendent Kent Mutchler will get a 2.5 percent raise, to a salary of $203,720, under a contract extension the school board approved this week.
The contract will last until June 30, 2018.
Board members Michael McCormick and Leslie Juby voted against it.
The district will also pay an extra $9,000 in the 2013-14 contract year to a tax-deferred annuity for Mutchler, on top of the regular $5,000 contribution it will make each year. The contract says it is "in recognition of the previous year's performance."
Board President Mark Grosso said that was because Mutchler met several goals in the last year. A new teacher evaluation system was implemented without adding manpower, a two-year emergency response planning effort was completed successfully, and the high school's composite ACT score rose. "So we thought a performance stipend was in order," Grosso said.
The district chose to put the money in the annuity, rather than the base salary, so that it doesn't count as creditable salary when it comes time for Mutchler to retire, Grosso said.
The district will continue to make Mutchler's required contributions to the Teacher Retirement System and the Teacher Health Insurance Security program.
Mutchler will receive 30 paid sick days, five fewer than his last contract. Vacation days stay the same, at 25.
He will receive an $800-a-month allowance for travel within the confines of the Kane County Regional Office of Education boundaries, in lieu of the district providing him a vehicle as it did previously.
Mutchler was hired in 2006 on a three-year contract. In 2008 the school board extended it to 2013, and in 2009 the board extended it to 2014. Grosso and Juby voted against the extension in 2009.
