President Richard Varner intends to arrange the next steps for the superintendent search at a meeting in the near future, the school district continued.
After a school board meeting lasting more than three hours on Tuesday, the school board reached an agreement on the contract to send Dr. Goldhardt, after multiple discussions with the proposed superintendent that led to much confusion with the board.
Dr. Goldhardt requested a salary increase from what was offered, relocation costs and extended severance pay, among other demands.
Dr. Goldhardt also asked that the format of any evaluation of him and his work be decided by himself and the board.
