School district renews superintendent contract

Print Article

The Whitefish School Board on April 11 approved extending the contract for Superintendent Heather Davis Schmidt. The contract now runs for three years through 2020.

The board stretched Davis Schmidt’s current term from summer of 2016 to 2018 to July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020. The board also recognized Davis Schmidt’s “strong performance” by increasing her salary to correlate to the staff increase percentage. Davis Schmidt will receive an annual salary of $123,600 plus the base annual percentage increase agreed upon through the collective bargaining process between the district and Whitefish Education Association.

Davis Schmidt was hired as the district superintendent in May 2015 after previously serving as an executive regional director at Missoula County Public Schools.
