FUSD to name permanent superintendent

UPDATE (3:30 a.m. Jan. 15): Milt Werner is officially the superintendent of the county’s second-largest school district. He can shed the “interim” label finally. The board unanimously approved a four-year contract, effective through June 2012. Werner’s annual salary, which includes the cost of health benefits, is $230,000. His salary will be prorated this year.

ORIGINAL ENTRY: A Fremont school board member has confirmed that trustees plan to name Milt Werner the district’s permanent superintendent at tonight’s meeting. Werner has been with FUSD 5-and-a-half years and was made the interim supe after Doug Gephart retired last June.

I don’t expect a copy of Werner’s new contract to be made available until just before the official board vote. But to give you an idea of what it may look like, the contract the board approved last spring for Werner to serve as interim supe included a total comp package of $228,800 — $215K in salary and the rest in perks.
