The Muscogee County School Board will meet on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 6 p.m. in the board room of the Muscogee County Public Education Center.
During the meeting, the board will vote on a one-year extension of Superintendent Susan Andrews' contract. Her contract was initially set for three years, ending on January 31, 2012, with a base salary of $170,000 a year. The recommendation for a one-year extension is based on her evaluation, conducted by the board at a retreat in January.
The board will also vote on a proposed three-day furlough for all employees.
Administrators are considering changing the calendar for the rest of this school year by taking away three work days for faculty and staff to make up for a reduction in state funding. The school district is anticipating a $4.8 million cut in funding, including about $2 million in salaries before the fiscal year ends in June 30.
