O'Sullivan's contract extended to 2015

NORWICH – Superintendent Gerard O’Sullivan will remain with the Norwich school district for five more years, according to the terms of a contract approved by the board of education Wednesday night.

The contract will extend through June 30, 2015. O’Sullivan received no salary increase under the terms of the agreement. He currently receives $152,743 in compensation per year. His most recent raise, of 3 percent, was awarded in September when his contract was last renewed.

The board voted to approve the new agreement by a vote of 4 to 3, with board members Sally Chirlin, Priscilla Johnson and Tom Morrone dissenting.

The decision was made following a heated public comment, in which several community members registered their concerns over the superintendent’s contract extension being on the agenda at all.

Board member-elect Linda Horovitz hoisted a packet she said contained letters she’d received from teachers.

“Our morale is worse than ever,” she said.
