Waterloo Superintendent awarded contract extension

Posted: Updated:

A big vote of confidence for Waterloo School Superintendent, Dr. Jane Lindaman.

The Waterloo School Board Monday night awarded Dr. Lindaman a contract extension, which will keep her as Waterloo Superintendent at least until 2019.

The vote was unanimous to offer her the contract extension.

The Board named Dr. Lindaman Superintendent in 2014, taking over for Dr. Gary Norris.

Under some very tight budget restraints, Dr. Lindaman has led the Waterloo Community School District the past three years. 

Exhibiting her commitment to Waterloo, Dr. Lindaman is giving up an $8,600 raise she's already earned, and will accept only the flat $1,200 being awarded to all Waterloo Schools administrators.

Her priorities have included reducing the drop out rate, increasing the graduation rate and offering students new classes through the district's expanded Career and Technical Education program. (CTE)
