Portage Town­ship to name school su­per­in­ten­dent Mon­day

Post-Tribune - - Post-tribune local - BY JOHN ROB­BINS Post-Tri­bune cor­re­spon­dent

The Portage Town­ship School Board will an­nounce its se­lec­tion of a new school su­per­in­ten­dent at a spe­cial meet­ing at 5:30 p.m. Mon­day in the Portage High School East Com­mons.

A re­cep­tion that will al­low the pub­lic to meet and greet the new su­per­in­ten­dent will fol­low.

The board also is ex­pected to ap­prove a new con­tract for the su­per­in­ten­dent. The newly ap­pointed su­per­in­ten­dent will re- ceive $129,396.91 an­nu­ally, the same amount de­part­ing su­per­in­ten­dent Ric Frat­ac­cia re­ceived dur­ing his last year at the helm.

In ad­di­tion, the school will pay $11,700 to pur­chase an an­nu­ity and will pro­vide a car, in­sur­ance and re­tire­ment con­tri­bu­tion.

The board spent sev­eral months search­ing for a new su­per­in­ten­dent.

The search process was de­layed in part due to the res­ig­na­tion of long-term board mem­ber Wil­liam Fekete and se­lec­tion of his re­place­ment, Andy Maletta.

Twelve ap­pli­ca­tions for the po­si­tion were re­ceived. Three fi­nal­ists were se­lected and in­ter­viewed by the five-mem­ber board. Ap­pli­ca­tions were re­ceived from In­di­ana, Illi­nois and Michi­gan.

The new su­per­in­ten­dent of­fi­cially will take over Tues­day.
