The Oxford School Board voted 7-0 to give Superintendent Tim Throne a 4 percent salary increase at its Sept. 12 meeting following positive evaluations.
Effective Sept. 29, Throne’s salary will increase to $182,000 per year, plus benefits– $7,000 more than his current salary.
His contract was recently extended by the board through December 2021.
As a safeguard, the superintendent’s contract also includes the option to reopen negotiations if there’s a decline in revenue or there are changes in enrollment and/or per pupil funding from the state.
This aligns with recent union contracts which were approved by the board for Oxford staff.
