The Kanawha County Board of Education believes that Superintendent Ron Duerring is doing a good job.
“The Board ascertained that he had met all of our requirements for the year and that he had met all the requirements of the West Virginia Department of Education so therefore we gave him a most satisfactory evaluation,” said Board President Pete Thaw.
Board members met behind closed doors for three hours Wednesday for the superintendents annual evaluation. The Board evaluated Dr. Duerring’s performance based on a variety of aspects in the education system.
Thaw said Dr. Duerring serves the people of Kanawha County very well.
Duerring has worked in the Kanawha County Schools system since 1998 and is one of the longest serving county superintendents in the state.
His current contract is set to expire June 30.
Thaw reiterated that Wednesday’s meeting had nothing to do with Duerring’s new contract. He said that will be handled by the Board in May.
Duerring, whose salary is $150,000, is the second highest paid county superintendent in the state behind Berkeley County’s superintendent who earns $154,140 annually.
Kanawha County Board of Education members will meet Monday in a special session.
