The Model Contract

Council attorneys represent superintendents in every stage of contract negotiations with the goal of reaching agreement with respective school boards on contracts that best meet the individual needs of the superintendent and protects the superintendent should relations with the board sour including:

  • Model Contract: The Council's model contract serves as a base for negotiation of new agreements or as a means of evaluating a superintendent’s current contract. Not all superintendents will have or need every clause in the model, but the language it contains is a good resource for superintendents wishing to add a benefit, or restate a provision. 

  • New Superintendents: The Council represents new superintendents in the negotiation of their initial contract, even before they join as members.

  • Contract Reviews/Renewals: The Council reviews superintendent contracts to identify out-of-date clauses that may jeopardize their rights, or to identify benefits that should be restructured based on current trends, new status or changing personal situations. Should recommended changes require renegotiation, The Council will represent the superintendent.
