  • When they met Monday, Leavenworth school board members approved contract extensions for a number of administrators, directors and other district employees, according to school officials.
    The contract extensions were approved after board members met behind closed doors in executive session for 50 minutes to discuss personnel. The vote to approve the contract extensions was 5-2 with board members Nancy Klemp and Loyal Torkelson voting against the measure, according to Assistant Board Clerk Brenda Sheumaker.
    The contracts were extended for employees who are not subject to the district's negotiated agreement with teachers but are paid on a salary basis rather than an hourly basis. These employees include the associate superintendent, assistant superintendent, chief financial officer, principals, assistant principals, special education directors and special education coordinators.
    The contracts for Associate Superintendent Eric Punswick, Assistant Superintendent Bret Church and Chief Financial Officer Kevin Gullett were extended through June 2016.
    Other contracts were extended through June 2015 or June 2014.
    Superintendent Kelly Crane said the action taken by the board did not address salaries.
    Crane's contract was not included in the motion that was approved Monday.
    Board members already had voted in January to extend her contract through June 2016.
