The newly-named superintendent for Harford County Public Schools Dr. Robert Tomback signed a contract with the school board for a base salary of $190,000 per year for four years, at the board’s business meeting in Bel Air Monday night. Terms of the contract were not released during the public portion of the meeting.
The length of the superintendent’s contract is required by state law, according to HCPS Manager of Communications Teri Kranefeld. Kranefeld said the other provisions of the contract are not being released to the public.
After the Harford County Board of Education unanimously approved his contract, Dr. Tomback said that although his term doesn’t officially begin until July 1st, “you’ll see me around before then”.
Tomback also said he’d been asked if he was “the change agent” but he considered himself an agent of progress. “It is my highest priority to be an agent of progress for every student.” Tomback said he planned to put miles on his car visiting schools and getting to know people as quickly and as thoroughly as possible, telling the assembled audience “I welcome your help.”
