Margaretta Schools has publicly released its new superintendent's contract, a three-year deal totaling about $400,000 in salary and perks.

Daniel Schroer, the district's new leader, will earn $119,000 this year.

He officially inked the deal May 14, with a start date of Aug. 1. 

Schroer is currently superintendent of Greene County Career Center in Xenia, near Dayton. 

He has 21 years of experience in education, including three years as a teacher for Benton-Carroll-Salem Schools.

In an interview with the Register this shortly after his hire, Schroer said he's looking forward to leading the small, rural district and getting to know its families.

Other highlights of Schroer's contract include a requirement his family relocate to the Margaretta Schools area, six weeks paid vacation, and reimbursement for travel, professional organizations, continuing education and cell phone usage.

Schroer will replace 12-year superintendent Ed Kurt, who announced his resignation in February after accepting a job as Findlay Schools superintendent.
