FRISCO – Summit School District Board of Education recently extended Superintendent Millie Hamner’s current contract for two years.”Summit School District is fortunate to have such an outstanding leader in Dr. Hamner. Millie has brought clarity and vision to our work, and most importantly, she has created a tremendously positive relationship with the community. … She is tireless in her enthusiastic championing of our schools, teachers, students and parents,” said board member Christine Scanlan.At the last school board meeting, members went into executive session to discuss Hamner’s evaluation and contract. An hour later, they returned to approve it through the 2008/2009 school year and to include a raise that is not to exceed the average raise given to other employee groups.Teacher negotiations are expected to conclude next Friday, which will determine raises for those employed with the school district.”I am delighted to have the board’s confidence in my leadership and look forward to continuing to lead this outstanding school system into the future,” Hamner said.She took over the position of superintendent three years ago with a starting salary of $140,000, which is in the middle of the range, $115,000 to $174,000, that superintendents in resort communities make. About a year ago, Hamner received a raise to $144,200.Before becoming the superintendent, Hamner worked as the assistant superintendent for three years in Summit County. She carried experience with her from working as an assistant principal and interim director of curriculum, instruction and staff development in Eagle County. She has also worked as a teacher for first, second, third, fifth and eighth grades.Julie McCluskie, director of climate and communications for the school district, attended the school board meeting April 25 when Hamner’s contract was discussed.”She is so well regarded by our school board that there was nothing but praise and gratitude,” McCluskie said.
