The Waterford Schools Board of Education has approved an extension of Superintendent John Silveri’s contract until the end of the 2013-14 school year.
The extension, approved on Thursday, Aug. 4, came shortly after the school board approved Silveri’s performance evaluation for the 2010-11 school year.
Rhonda Lessel, a district school and community services specialist, said performance evaluations are conducted every year.
Silveri’s original contract called for a three-year tenure until the 2012-13 school year. His contract will now expire on June 30, 2014.
Silveri was officially introduced as the district’s superintendent by the school board back on Sept. 2.
He replaced former Superintendent Robert Neu, who left the Waterford district to become the superintendent for the Federal Way Public School District in Federal Way, Wash.
Under Silveri’s watch, the district passed a balanced budget for the 2011-12 school year last June, while the district’s unions also ratified their contracts last July with provisions including members foregoing a 2-percent wage increase and contributing to their health care.
