No Salary Increase for Gratto, But Contract Extended

Posted on 24 June 2010

Prompted by a question from a parent, Walter Wilcoxen, President of the Sag Harbor School Board, announced at a meeting on Monday, June 21, that superintendent Dr. John Gratto’s contract with the district has been extended for two additional years. Wilcoxen added that Dr. Gratto agreed to a salary freeze for the coming school year.
At the meeting, parent Chris Tice, who will also join the school board in early July, sought clarity on an agenda item approving an amendment to Dr. Gratto’s contract. Wilcoxen answered that the contract would remain the same with the exception of the agreement’s date of termination. The original agreement started on July 1, 2008 and ended on June 30, 2011. The amended contract will terminate in June 2013.
Wilcoxen noted that Dr. Gratto performed very well on his board evaluation forms. He marked considerably above average, said Wilcoxen.
“We are fortunate to have Dr. Gratto. I believe the district will go through a wonderful time of expansion,” Wilcoxen remarked. “We want to go from good to great. Dr. Gratto is the man to help us.”
Last year, the board approved a $25,000, or 13.5 percent, raise for Dr. Gratto. This decision increased his salary from $185,000 to $210,000. In the 2010-2011 school year, Dr. Gratto has agreed to suspend any salary increase.
