The Elkhorn Public Schools superintendent has received about a 4% pay increase in a contract approved by the school board.

Under the new contract, Bary Habrock will have a base salary of $229,694 for the 2019-20 school year. That’s an $8,834 increase over the salary in the 2018-19 school year.

The new contract goes into effect July 1 and ends June 30, 2022.

The contract also states that the maximum potential pay for unused vacation days is $8,766.95.

The board approved the contract Monday night on a 5-0 vote. Board member Chuck Burney was absent.

Board President John Marasco said the contract will retain a valuable member of the district.

Beyond insurance and retirement, $900 was allotted for membership dues in Habrock’s contract.

Other area school districts have cellphone or Internet reimbursements or travel allowances in superintendents’ contracts. Habrock’s contract does not include those benefits, but it does say he can be reimbursed for “reasonable and proper” travel and other out-of-pocket expenses associated with his duties as superintendent.

Habrock has been superintendent since July 2017. Before becoming superintendent, he was an assistant superintendent and a high school principal in the district.
