Decatur Superintendent David Dude received a $10,000 bonus at the end of the June 13 board meeting and is also getting a $10,000 raise.

The bonus and pay increase are part of the contract he signed when he became superintendent in 2015.

School Board members approved the bonus unanimously at the conclusion of their June 13 meeting.

The contract expires on June 30, 2018, unless the school board chooses to renew it or decides to terminate it early. If the contract is renewed, Dude’s salary would increase to $199,000. He is eligible for $20,000 in performance bonuses in the 2017-2018 school year.

Dude also receives a $1,500 monthly allowance for expenses related to his job as superintendent. He can use some or all of the allowance to pay for housing within the city of Decatur.
