EVERETT — The superintendent of Everett Public Schools received a contract extension and a raise this week.

The district’s Board of Directors voted unanimously Tuesday to boost Superintendent Ian Saltzman’s base salary to $300,176 and extend his contract to June 30, 2025. Directors evaluated Saltzman’s performance in a closed-door session May 17.

Saltzman was hired in May 2019, receiving a three-year contract with an annual salary of $261,000. In 2020, the board extended the deal by a year but, at his request, did not hike his base pay.

Last year, the board approved another extension and increased his base salary to $276,660.

Meanwhile, Superintendent Alison Brynelson of the Mukilteo School District is also getting a contract extension and salary increase.

The Mukilteo School Board on May 9 agreed to a 7.75% raise for Brynelson, who has been at the helm since Jan. 1, 2020. She will earn $293,767 a year starting July 1. She also will receive a $10,000 “longevity” bonus in June 2023, a benefit commonly used by districts to retain superintendents.

Her contract, which runs three years, was extended by a year to June 30, 2025.
