Wakeley’s appointment to the position was approved March 16, but the details of his contract were still be worked out at that time. During the April 20 board meeting, board members unanimously approved a salary of $230,200 for the year he is superintendent-elect working alongside Superintendent Von Mansfield.

For the final year of the contract, Wakeley will start with a $235,200 salary and receive the percentage increase equal to the teachers’ raise reached through collective bargaining or he can accept a salary of $240,200.

The board is also working on a set of goals for Wakeley. Board President Steve Anderson said “we will refine those in the future.”
