The Spokane Public Schools board of directors approved a new contract for Superintendent Shelley Redinger, Feb. 22.

Under the new contract, Redinger’s base salary will be $225,000. Previously she made $214,285. The new contract will go into effect July 1, 2017 and last through June, 2020.

Redinger has been superintendent since July, 2012. Prior to that she was a superintendent in Virginia and was credited with changing the culture and operations of that district.

School board president Deana Brower praised Redinger before approving the new contract. Under Redinger’s leadership, the district started using data more effectively to address systemic issues, like the opportunity gap, Brower said.

Former board member Bob Douhitt, whose last board meeting was Feb. 22, also praised Redinger.

“The best thing that ever happened while I’ve been on the board is when we hired you in 2012,” he said.
