The Gilbert Unified School District governing board voted 3-2 vote not to award Superintendent Dave Allison performance pay for the last two months.
Based on new state law, and Gilbert’s approved policy, the superintendent is to be evaluated every two months. The state law requires 20 percent of his salary -- or about $32,000 –- to be based on performance. Allison’s current annual salary is $155,000. With each of the six evaluations, Allison would be awarded more than $5,000.
This is the first time since the policy was put in place in 2010 that Allison did not receive a satisfactory review. The next review will be in January.
The review was performed in a closed-door, executive session following Tuesday night’s regular board meeting.
