The Georgetown ISD board of trustees elected June 17 to extend Superintendent Devin Padavil's contract for four more years after his first year serving the district.

What you need to know

After a summative evaluation of the superintendent's performance, trustees voted unanimously to extend Padavil's contract through July 2028 with no change to base compensation, and they also eliminated a $20,000 allowance for executive coaching at the superintendent's request.

Padavil's base compensation is $226,770, according to the Texas Education Agency.

What they're saying

Padavil said he requested the additional executive coaching funding be removed from his compensation package as the district faces a budget with a shortfall.

"I am blessed with a good network of retired superintendents that I can call upon," Padavil said. "So far, they've never asked me to charge them. But the other part is we're at a budget deficit. I felt like a personal perk in my benefits when I'm asking the organization so much is not appropriate."

How we got here

Padavil was hired last August, shortly after the departure of former GISD Superintendent Fred Bent earlier that year.
