School Board Sets New Goals For Superintendent

Schools Superintendent John Ravally stands to earn nearly $30,000 in merit pay at the end of the coming school year if he meets five goals set for him by the school board.

Schools Superintendent John Ravally stands to earn another $29,000 at the end of the upcoming school year, based on five goals approved Aug 23 by the Board of Education.

As it does yearly, the board set three quantitative goals and two qualitative goals for Ravally, with tiered payments based on how much of each goal he accomplishes.

The board approved nearly $30,000 in merit bonuses for Ravally last month, based on his meeting all the goals set for him.

The new quantitaitve goals are:

  • Increase the number of Hispanic and African American students enrolled in Advanced Placement courses between 10 percent and 20 percent. There are currently 60 Hispanic students and 72 African American students enrolled in AP courses.
  • Increase the grade-level proficiency of 5th and 6th Graders in English Language Arts by between 2 percent and 7 percent.
  • Reduce the number of Franklin High School student course failures due to insufficient “seat time” by students by between 5 percent and 15 percent.
  • Ravally stands to earn an additional $6,546.25 for each of those three quantitative goals if they are fully met.

The qualitative goals are:

  • Develop a method to track and create a report documenting the post-secondary school success of Franklin High School graduates.
  • Establish a new educational foundation.

Each of those qualitative goals would earn Ravally an additional $4,914.60 if met.

Ravally is in the second year of a five-year contract which carries a base salary of $191,000, up to $196,584 when stipends are included. The salary stays the same in the contract’s third year, with 2 percent raises in each of years four and five.
