The Baldwin-Whitehall School Board Wednesday night gave the superintendent a new three-year contract, one year before his current pact expires, in an effort to create stability in the district, the board president said.

Board members in an 8-1 vote approved the contract for Superintendent Randal Lutz that runs from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2018. Board member Martin Michael Schmotzer dissented.

Lutz has served as superintendent since 2012.

The new contract outlines annual 3 percent raises for Lutz if he receives a satisfactory review from the board, school board President Larry Pantuso said.

Lutz, 46, of Baldwin Borough, will be paid $146,015 in 2014-15, after board members in a separate, unanimous vote approved a 4 percent raise.

“For me, it was about stability, that we are moving in the right direction and that the board is happy with what we're doing,” Lutz said. “To me, it's a reassurance that we are making some good strides and we are moving in the right direction.”

Pantuso echoed those sentiments, stating that the new contract provides the district with stability in leadership.

Lutz has worked in Baldwin-Whitehall since 1996, serving as assistant principal and principal at Harrison Middle School, director of elementary education, director of federal programs, assistant superintendent of elementary education and acting superintendent.
