Huntley School District 158 board approves assistant superintendent contract

Swearing in of new board member slated for April 29 meeting

The Huntley School District 158 board approved a three-year contract for Erika Schlichter, assistant superintendent of learning and innovation, Thursday that would see the administrator make $480,000 through the life of the contract.

Her newly approved contract calls for her to make $155,000 in base salary next year, then $160,000 in the second year and $165,000 in the third year of the contract – $50,000 less than the terms of Superintendent Scott Rowe’s current contract.

The contract was approved without opposition by a 6-0 vote. Board member Ra’Shawn Walker was not in attendance.

In addition to her salary, the board will pick up Schlichter’s entire contribution to the Illinois Teachers’ Retirement System pension fund during the term of the agreement.

It also will pick up and pay the assistant superintendent’s entire contribution to the Teachers’ Health Insurance Security fund.

Dan Armstrong, director of communications for the district, said there will be a special meeting April 29 to swear in new board member Melissa Maiorino.

Maiorino was one of three individuals elected to a four-year term on the board in April’s election; the other two were board members Kevin Gentry and William Geheren. Board member Anthony Quagliano ran unopposed for a two-year seat.

Walker, who was appointed to the board last year, also ran for one of the open seats but was defeated.
