A performance-based pay raise system for principals and vice principals in the Gateway School District was approved unanimously on Monday by the school board.

The evaluation system was part of a four-year contract with district administrators approved by the school board. The contract will require approval from building administrators at a meeting this week, school director Chad Stubenbort said.

The contract calls for a 1 percent raise for building principals each of the next four years, unless their performance is deemed “unsatisfactory” by Superintendent Nina Zetty during an annual evaluation.

If principals exceed additional individual, building and districtwide goals set at the start of the school year — such as state mandated test scores — they could receive a $5,000 bonus, Stubenbort said.

The previous contract with administrators expired in 2012, which resulted in a pay freeze for building principals.
