GLOVERSVILLE - The Gloversville Enlarged School District Board of Education this month approved an employment agreement with Assistant Superintendent Steven Schloicka.

The terms of the agreement are for July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2017, and include a 12-month work year, the agreement said.

According to the agreement, during the 2012-13 school year, Schloicka will earn $115,360, with raises included the following two years. In the 2013-14 school year, he will receive $118,821, and in 2014-15, he will earn $122,386.

"For all future years, the Assistant?Superintendent's salary shall be determined by negotiations between the board and the superintendent based upon the board's evaluation of the assistant superintendent's performance during the prior school year," the agreement said.

Board member Robert Curtis said the board changed Schloicka's title about a year ago from business manager to assistant superintendent, but his responsibilities remained the same.

Schloicka started as the district's business manager in 2007. Before that, he was a partner at the Leavenworth & Co. accounting firm in Fonda, as well as an associate examiner of municipal affairs in the state comptroller's office.

Schloicka will receive 20 sick-leave days on July 1 of each year, and any unused sick leave can be accumulated from one year to the next for a maximum of 200 days, the agreement said.

The agreement also said the assistant superintendent will be entitled to five days of paid personal leave per school year and granted 20 days of paid vacation leave yearly.

However, the vacation time cannot be taken in blocks of more than two weeks and vacation time can be accumulated to a maximum of 30 days.

According to the agreement, the district will pay 75 percent of the cost of the assistant superintendent's health and dental insurance plans for himself and dependents.

The district will pay up to a maximum of $300 per credit hour for courses taken during the term of the agreement, up to a maximum of six credit hours per calendar year, the agreement said.

According to payroll records posted online by the Empire Center for New York State Policy, Schloicka was making $85,000 in 2010 and $107,846 in 2011.

Schloicka was one of three candidates the school board initially considered to replace departed superintendent Robert?DeLilli, who left for the same job in the Johnstown school district. At that time, it was noted Schloicka was working on his master's in educational administration and leadership from the State University of New York in New Paltz, and was expected to complete his studies this year.
