A three-year contract for Harrison School District 36's superintendent is set to be voted on for a second time at Tuesday's school board meeting.

The contract will be exactly the same as the one first approved for Sue Wings in June, but this time the item was posted on the agenda and a link was provided so the community can read it for themselves.

There was no agenda item notifying the public of Wings' contract before it was voted at last month's meeting because the one-building school district, which serves more than 400 students, just had not done that in the past, Wings said. The district chose to put the item on the agenda with a link after being contacted by the Northwest Herald.

"We just want to make it right and be transparent," said Wings, who is in her seventh year as superintendent at the Wonder Lake-based district.

The district serves students pre-k through eighth grade. Just this year the district brought back a pre-k program for children with special needs.

The new contract, which runs now through June 30, 2022, includes a salary of $115,850 in the first year, $120,484 in the second year and $125,304 in the third year, according to the contract.

During the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years Wings' salary was $111,850, according to district documents.

The contract also includes $100 toward Wings' cellphone and $2,000 a year for her dues and membership fees to professional organizations, according to the contract.

The meeting begins 7 p.m. Tuesday in the district building at 6809 McCullom Road.
