Alabaster BOE extends superintendent’s contract

ALABASTER – The Alabaster Board of Education voted unanimously during a late-April meeting to extend Alabaster City Schools Superintendent Dr. Wayne Vickers’ contract by one year, while keeping his salary the same.

The April 26 move came after Vickers received a positive performance review from the school system for the fourth consecutive year, said Alabaster School Board President Adam Moseley.

“He absolutely had a positive review, and this kind of reaffirms our commitment to him,” Moseley said. “We are happy to have him here, and we look forward to having him here for a long time.”

As a result of the extension, Vickers’ contract now extends through 2022, while his salary remains the same $180,250 approved by the board in May 2015.

In 2015, the School Board added a longevity incentive to Vickers’ contract, meaning he will earn $10,000 per year from 2015-2020, but only if he stays with the system through 2020. In 2020, Vickers will be eligible to receive an extra $50,000, but will not be eligible to receive the extra money if he leaves the system before 2020.
