Pay increases, new hires for upcoming school year

Oneonta City Board of Education

While new hires comprised the majority of Oneonta City Board of Education’s meeting Monday afternoon, the board also addressed several other important matters. The board recommended and approved a 2 percent pay increase for the school’s chief financial officer Kathy Loggins as well as an annual compensation of $135,000 for OCS superintendent Daniel Smith.

Also, the board accepted the resignation of board member Steve Anderton. Anderton was first elected to the board in 2014 and re-elected in 2018.

“We appreciate his service to the board as well as the time and effort he put into this school system,” said board member Don Maples. “With his work schedule, it’s become increasingly harder for him to continue to serve. I thank him for all he’s done for Oneonta City Schools.”

Smith also praised Anderton. “I would also like to thank Mr. Anderton not only for his service to the board, but also for his service to the school and the community. His love for both has always been apparent.”

The board will now appoint a replacement to finish out the remainder of Anderton’s term, which ends in 2022.
