With little discussion, Travis Unified leaders on Tuesday unanimously approved a two-year contract for the district’s new assistant superintendent, accepted a Defense Department grant, and approved the 2015-16 revised budget.
Meeting in the Travis Education Center in Fairfield, the five-member governing board approved the salary package for Sue Brothers, the newly named assistant superintendent and formerly the district’s director of curriculum, instruction and assessment. She replaced Jim Bryan, who retired June 30.
Brothers will earn $127,515 in annual base salary through June 30, 2017, and she may receive a salary adjustment at any time if board members agree. She will receive the standard manager’s benefits package, be compensated for job-related travel expenses, and earn 22 paid vacation days each year.
