Trustees with Brownstown Central Community School Corp. have offered a three-year contract with a base annual salary of $120,000 to the man serving now as interim superintendent.

On July 1, Jim Terrell replaced Roger Bane as interim superintendent after Bane retired in May, citing differences in the direction the board was taking after the January death of long-time board president Jack Montgomery.

The proposal offered to Terrell does not mean he has the superintendent’s job – yet.

The hiring process requires that once a board reaches a tentative contract with a candidate, it must publish the details of that contract, including salary information in a local newspaper and conduct a public hearing to give people an opportunity to comment on the contract.

The proposed contract with salary information is available online at
