Woodstock D-200 school board renews superintendent’s contract

WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Community Unit School District 200 board has approved a new three-year contract and raise for Superintendent Mike Moan.

Moan initially will receive a $13,020 raise from his current salary of $185,850, and a 2 percent salary increase for the next two years of the contract.

This reflects an average 3.66 percent salary increase over the term of the contract, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent Lynn Mohan said in an email.

Although board President Carl Gilmore was absent from the May 10 meeting when the contract was unanimously approved, he said he supported the board’s decision.

Gilmore said the board has been supportive of the direction Moan has gone since starting as superintendent in 2014.

“We’ve been just pleased with his overall management and performance in terms of his community outreach, his attempt to try to meet with any groups and be involved in the community and be visible in the community,” Gilmore said.

Gilmore said that under Moan’s leadership, the district also has implemented the one-to-one program, updated the strategic plan and negotiated new contracts with the Woodstock Council of Teachers, Woodstock School Related Personnel, Woodstock Council of Classified Employees Custodial Chapter and Woodstock Transportation Employees’ Council.

“It’s a big job, and there’s a lot to do,” Gilmore said. And because the board was happy with Moan’s performance, it decided it was a good time to renew his contract, Gilmore said.

This contract will replace Moan’s initial contract, which went through 2017, and was offered by the board after Moan’s annual review on April 14, Mohan said. The new contract starts
July 1.

There are no changes in the vacation time Moan receives, or his monthly automobile allowance of $333.33, according to the contract.

Moan, a 1991 graduate of Woodstock High School, became superintendent following the retirement of Ellyn Wrzeski. He previously was the chief academic officer in Huntley Community School District 158.
