5 years ago

HOULTON, Maine — RSU 29 Superintendent Ellen Halliday will be sticking around for at least the next four years as the school board and superintendent agreed to a one-year contract extension Monday.

Halliday is now under contract through the 2021-22 school year.

Last year, Halliday was given a four-year contract with a starting salary of $111,400 beginning with the 2017-18 school year. Her new extension includes a 2 percent pay increase.

RSU 29 includes Houlton, Littleton, Monticello and Hammond with a total enrollment of about 1,400.

“The RSU 29 Board is very pleased with the work and leadership Ellen has provide our district,” board chairman Fred Grant said. “We are very fortunate to have her as our superintendent and extending her contract was an indication of the support she has from her board.”
