Murray County Central School Board Meeting

August 15, 2012

School board approves sharing Superintendent Luther Onken with Fulda
By: Rebecca Hudson Murray County News Staffwriter

The Murray County Central school board Monday  night approved a contract that will allow for the sharing of Fulda School District Superintendent Luther Onken.  The 50/50 share will allow for Onken to divide his time "as equally as possible" between the two districts and will result in a sharing of his $136,609.72 compensation package.  MCC's portion of that will be $62,623.79 annually, which is 50% of 11/12th of the total amount, since Onken will come on board one month into the school year on September 1. 

Onken, a graduate of Slayton High School, was on hand at Monday night's school board meeting to discuss the arrangement and noted that he believes both districts will benefit in the long term.  "We have more to gain from this than you do," he said of Fulda's school district.  "There will be a lot of cost savings that can happen as we go forward," he said adding, "Initially I think it is a good thing."
