The Ketchikan Gateway Borough Board of Education will vote Wednesday on a three-year extension of Superintendent Robert Boyle’s contract, with a salary of $129,150 for the first year, effective July 1st.

The contract in front of the Board calls for a raise each year of the contract. If approved, Boyle would be paid $131,000 in 2015, and $133,000 the final year of the contract. Those numbers do not include benefits.

According to the proposed contract, the benefits include health insurance, a life insurance policy, 35 days of annual vacation, and an automobile allowance of $250 a month for using a personal vehicle to visit all the schools.

Boyle has been the Ketchikan schools superintendent since 2007.
