Seattle School Board extends Banda’s contract 1 year, through June 2016
The Seattle School Board voted Wednesday to extend Superintendent José Banda’s contract through June 2016, an extension of one year.
The vote was unanimous, in contrast to the board’s earlier evaluation of Banda’s first year, in which five board members rated him as meeting or exceeding expectations in all five areas that the evaluation covered, but two rated him as below expectations or unsatisfactory.
The board has yet to decide whether Banda will receive a raise. They deferred that decision until after the district finishes contract negotiations with labor groups, including those representing teachers and principals.
When he was hired, Banda was given a base salary of $270,000 a year.
