A new contract for County School Supt. Bryan Johnson that is expected to be approved by a majority of the School Board on Thursday includes a significant raise to a base pay of $240,000.
His base pay was $197,500 when he got a four-year contract in 2017. That contract is not due to run out until 2021.
But the board majority is expected to move ahead with a new four-year contract now.
Under the new pact that goes to June 30, 2024, he would get the same pay increases as do other school employees.
He could earn up to $20,000 in additions to his pay. These include:
- $5,000 when at least half of all third grade students are on track or achieve mastery as measured by the TNReady English Language Arts assessment,
- $5,000 when 38 percent of all students across all grades are on track in Algebra 1,
- $5,000 when the average ACT composite for the class of 2023 is 21, and
- $5,000 if 90 percent of students who entered high school in 2019 graduate by Summer, 2023.
