Draft contract calls for $225,000 salary, car and phone for Poore as LR superintendent

Posted By on Tue, Apr 19, 2016 at 10:37 AM

I made an FOI request for any documents related to a contract for incoming Little Rock School Superintendent Michael Poore brought a draft that an Education Department spokesman said Poore had not seen and wasn't final.

It calls for $225,00 pay to lead the district through the next school year, plus a car and phone allowance. It allows his termination without cause before June 30, 2017 with 30 days notice. Poore made $209,500 in Bentonville

Baker Kurrus, removed by Education Commissioner Johnny Key, is paid $150,000.
