Decatur, GA — At its most recent meeting, the Decatur School Board voted to give Superintendent David Dude a three-year contract extension and a raise.

Dude’s salary for the next three years will be as follows:
– $255,704 for 2021-2022 school year
– $262,280 for 2022-2023 school year

Dude donated his last $20,000 bonus to CSD’s cafeteria workers and custodians working on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A copy of his new contract was not immediately available.
