McGinnis, who has been with the system for five years, will receive $110,775 along with any percentage increase that is granted to certified employees. For the following years, the same formula will be followed.
In his annual evaluation, board members said the school system under the leadership of McGinnis “is becoming more effective at educating the children of Trigg County” and that the superintendent “has the support and confidence of the board.”
The board noted that since being employed with the school system that McGinnis “set a bold and ambitious goal of leading the school district to one of the top five in our region.” Currently the district ranks tenth, up from its 24th place ranking.
McGinnis was also cited for the district in the No Child Left Behind targets for the 2006-2007 school year. The school had failed to meet its goals in previous years and it was noted that if the school maintains its current ranking, Trigg County will be the first school in the state to exit the Tier III status, avoiding a number of state sanctions.
