August 2014 Group Watch: School Superintendent Extension & Raise

The state school board recently extended the contract of Superintendent Tommy Bice through 2017 and granted a 25 percent salary increase. School board vice-president Ella Bell said the system is headed in the right direction, and Bice has done a good job. She added that the salary increase brings Bice in line with the postsecondary chancellor’s salary. Governor Bentley’s office said the governor supports the contract extension and the pay raise, adding that Bice and the chancellor for postsecondary schools are working with him to ensure students are prepared for the next step in life. Rumors surfaced during the summer that Bice was being pursued for lucrative positions in the education arena in the state. Bice expressed appreciation to the board for their action but added that he will not accept the offer if it divides the board.
