Superintendent Villar Gets Contract Extension, Raise

The Windsor board of education conducted the superintendent's annual evaluation Tuesday night, and made contract adjustments according to its view of his performance.

The Windsor board of education expressed continued support for Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jeffrey Villar Tuesday night, voting to extend his contract in town by one year.

The contract extension keeps Villar in the district through 2016.

Per board of education policy, the three-year contract is the longest period of time a superintendent can be committed to.

The board also voted to give Villar a 3-percent raise, bringing his annual salary to $190,180.

Neither vote was unanimous.

Minority Leader Paul Panos was out of town Tuesday, but the vote still followed party lines, with Independent Kristin Ingram voting with board Democrats.

Republicans Cristina Santos and Pam DiGiore voted against both the contract extension and the raise.

Villar's evaluation was conducted during a closed-door portion of the board meeting.

The board also voted to adjust the superintendent's contract to run concurrently with the academic calendar.

If Windsor had more business minded members on the BOE Windsor would have a chance to turn this school district around. Those that voted to extend and increase Villars salary are following the path of those before them. However they wish not to be judge by those before them. This vote further convinces me in 2016 after Villar is done; if he stays that long Windsor will still be in the bottom quartile and have the luxury of paying higher taxes as a result of the lack of change in direction from the past.

There is not a single reason to give this guy a raise.

Maybe Dr villar should spend some quality time in our schools to earn his 190 thousand salary increase

After watching the Finance Cmtee's presentation to the board on 2/12, it is very apparent that the Democrats had already made up their minds as to what would be going forward. Why have a finance committee?? They didn't consider any of the comments made!!! And, to add insult to injury..... they extend his contract and give him a raise? For what - he hasn't done anything yet. People, I hope all of you remember this when it comes time to vote in this town.
