Highline Public Schools is considering an extension to superintendent Susan Enfield’s contract – keeping her on staff at least through June 30, 2019.
“I am truly honored to serve the students and families of Highline and am grateful for the board’s support and confidence in me,” Enfield said. “I cannot wait to welcome staff and students back for what I know will be our best year yet.”
The contract extension was introduced for the first reading during the school board’s meeting on Friday, Aug. 12. The board will vote on Enfield’s contract at its upcoming meeting slated for Wednesday, Sept. 7.
The contract will include a new annual salary of $230,679 for the superintendent.
Highline spokeswoman Catharine Carbone Rogers explained that the amount reflects a 1.8 percent cost of living increase, which she said was approved for all school employees in the last legislative session.
“All Highline employees got this same 1.8 percent cost of living increase this year,” Carbone Rogers said. “Dr. Enfield has not had a salary increase except for cost of living increases since she was first hired in 2012.”More ›
