The Duneland School Board will hold a special meeting Wednesday at 6 p.m.
with the intent of approving a proposed three-year superintendent of schools
contract for Dr. David Pruis.
Pruis has been Assistant Superintendent of Operations and Human Relations of
the Duneland School Corporation since July 2003. Previously he was
Superintendent of Schools in Hamilton County for four years and Union-North
United School Corporation Superintendent of Schools for seven years.
The contract as it was proposed at a public hearing on April 4 would begin
on July 1 this year and end on June 30, 2016. The listed base salary is
$145,000 annually and includes a benefits package. The current
superintendentís salary is $128,906.
The proposed contract appeared in the Chesterton Tribune on Monday,
March 25, as a legal notice.
The board will get an update on the Health and Wellness Center for DSC
staff. Members had voted 5-0 earlier this month to reject the bids after
they came in higher than expected for the renovation of the old
Instructional Materials Center on Fifth Street.
The meeting will be held at the DSC Administration Center, 601 West Morgan
