Boulder Valley School District’s Board of Education unanimously approved another three-year contract for Superintendent Rob Anderson at a special meeting Tuesday.
This will be Anderson’s fifth year as superintendent, and board President Kathy Gebhardt said she was glad to have his tenure continue.
“I’m super excited we’re going to have our superintendent next year and hopefully for many years to come,” Gebhardt said at the Tuesday meeting.
“It’s been a true honor to work with you and I appreciate everything you’ve done,” she told Anderson.
Anderson’s contract includes a salary of $278,091.
The board also approved Anderson’s annual evaluation, which looked at areas including strategic leadership, Board of Education relationship, human resources leadership, instructional and achievement leadership, operational leadership and community and external leadership.
In the evaluation, board members praised Anderson’s communication with the board, gains made on student support programs and overall leadership.
“The Board is pleased with Dr. Anderson’s performance in all critical areas. His commitment to the Board-Superintendent relationship, his passion for public education, and commitment to all students are areas we can celebrate,” board members wrote.
Board members also noted they wanted “to find additional ways to be connected and informed, especially in areas such as negotiations with employee groups.”
The board also wrote that human resources leadership was a difficult area to evaluate, but there had been significant improvements.
“The Board recognizes that this has been a very challenging year for Dr. Anderson with the number of changing administrative positions across the district and an incoming Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources,” board members wrote in Anderson’s evaluation. “The Board particularly values Dr. Anderson’s commitment to diversity in hiring, especially the Teachers of Color Hiring Event. He has worked hard in negotiations with the employee groups and increased substitute teacher pay by implementing surge pricing to help address the substitute teacher shortage.”
Anderson’s new contract starts on July 1 and lasts until June 30, 2025.
