Ann Arbor school board amends contract for interim superintendent
The Ann Arbor Board of Education approved Friday an addendum for supplemental pay to Deputy Superintendent David Comsa's contract.
Comsa assumed the role of superintendent July 10, when former top official Patricia Green retired from AAPS after less than 2 years with the district.
The board has been engaged in a national search for Green's replacement since April, when she tendered her resignation, and that search may be coming to a close.
The school board approved 7-0 Friday to offer the superintendent position to finalist Brian Osborne of New Jersey. Osborne currently is the superintendent of the South Orange-Maplewood School District. Contract negotiations will begin as soon as possible.
In Comsa's contract addendum, he will receive an additional $769.23 per week in supplemental compensation for his interim superintendent duties, which will continue per the addendum until the board employs a superintendent. The amount of $769.23 per week equates to $19.23 per hour for a typical 40-hour work week.
This pay will be on top of his $140,000 salary as deputy superintendent.
