The contract terms were finalized on Jan. 4 for Ridgefield Public Schools hiring of Kimberly Beck as assistant superintendent.
Beck signed a one-year contract effective Jan. 22, 2013 through June 30, 2013 for an annual salary of $172,000. Her salary will be pro-rated for the remainder of the 2013 school year for a total of $75,126.
The package also includes an additional $5,000 toward a tax-sheltered annuity. Beck will contribute to her health care costs at a rate negotiated by the school board and the school administrators union (links to all district contracts can be found here.) Beck's contract is posted with this story.
Beck came to Ridgefield from Greenwich Public Schools, where she was the principal of the Cos Cob school since 2007. Prior to Greenwich, she was assistant at the Silvermine School in Norwalk. She began her career in West Hartford after earning her teaching degree at Framingham State College.
At the time she was hired, Deborah Low, Superintendent of Ridgefield Schools, said Beck had "the knowledge, leadership skills, and experience necessary to be an excellent assistant superintendent and help Ridgefield successfully meet and exceed the challenges of the future. I believe she will both build on our strengths and move us forward."
