The Moffat County School District Board of Education took the first steps in seeking out a replacement for outgoing Superintendent Joe Petrone during a special meeting Thursday afternoon at Colorado Northwestern Community College.
There was a tinge of sadness among the members of the Moffat County School Board of Education when Superintendent Joe Petrone formally requested to end his tenure with the Moffat County School District a year early at the board's monthly meeting Thursday. Petrone’s contract with the district was intended to run through the end of the 2014-15 school year. His reason for leaving the position sooner than he had intended is his desire to spend more time with family.
The Moffat County School board voted unanimously Thursday to increase Superintendent Joe Petrone’s salary by 2.5 percent. The increase, which is retroactive, brings Petrone’s total annual salary to $128,125. The board designated July 1, 2011, or exactly two years after Petrone’s first day on the job, as the date the salary increase takes effect. The raise increases Petrone’s $125,000 salary by a little more than $3,000.
Communication and governance the focus
For the first time, Joseph Petrone will sit in the superintendent's chair at tonight's Moffat County School Board meeting.
