Possible approval of the interim superintendent’s contract, a proposal to negotiate a signing bonus for certain newly hired teachers, and the possible approval, after a public hearing, of an energy conservation contract with a Phoenix-based firm are on the agenda when Travis Unified leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.
The five-member governing board is expected to approve an employment contract with newly named interim superintendent Pamela Conklin, who replaces longtime superintendent Kate Wren Gavlak, who retires Jan. 31 after a long career in education.
In the meantime, under the contract’s terms, Conklin, currently the district’s chief human resources officer, will receive $14,472 monthly, or $173,664 annually, plus the standard health and benefits packages accorded to senior district managers, as provided by law.
