Decision Today On Hanover Schools Superintendent
An official decision is expected late this afternoon on a new school superintendent in Cedar Lake.
The Hanover Community School Board of Trustees is to meet in special session beginning at 5 o’clock to formally vote on a contract for Tom Taylor. Taylor and the board already have a verbal agreement and no one came to a public hearing last week to comment on the board’s choice.
Taylor’s proposed contract for the 2013-2014 school year includes a base salary of $114-thousand and nearly $45-thousand in benefits.
Taylor would take over for interim superintendent James Thorne, who is leaving to become a school district official in DuPage County next month. Thorne and Richard Cook have been running the Hanover Community schools after former Superintendent Carol Kaiser resigned last December.
