Trustees Extend Bauman Contract

Hazel Bauman will continue leading the Coeur d'Alene School District for another three years. At Monday's school board meeting, trustees voted unanimously to extend Bauman's contract as superintendent for another year through June 30, 2015. The terms of Bauman's employment contract have not changed, nor has Bauman's salary increased. Her annual pay amount remains $123,971, the same amount she has been receiving since July 1, 2009. In March of that year, the board allowed Bauman to take a voluntary 5 percent pay cut decreasing her then $130,496 salary by $6,524.80/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Bauman must be doing something right to get the unanimous endorsement of the split Coeur d'Alene School Board trustees, right?
