Bartlett gets vote of confidence from board

March 31, 1998

The Washington County Board of Education gave Schools Superintendent Herman G. Bartlett Jr. a show of confidence Tuesday night, when it was voted unanimously to give him a four-year contract pending successful completion of his evaluation.

Bartlett, 54, was hired in October 1997 to replace Wayne F. Gersen, who left in June 1997.

Bartlett is technically an acting superintendent through June 30, 1998, under state law, which requires four-year contracts for superintendents to begin on July 1, according to school officials.

The school board came to an "agreement in principle" to give Bartlett a four-year contact during its executive session Tuesday afternoon, board member Doris J. Nipps said.

The item regarding Bartlett was added to the business meeting agenda as a "special order of the day" at the start of the meeting.

The board scheduled the signing of Bartlett's contract - which would run July 1, 1998, through June 30, 2002 - for its May 5 business meeting.

The action will not be final until Bartlett's evaluation is completed and the contract is signed, school board Vice President B. Marie Byers said.

His annual salary is $105,000. He also has the use of an Oldsmobile Cutlass for travel back and forth to work and for business travel.
