Tate Contract Extended

Davenport School District

The contract for the superintendent of the Davenport schools has been extended. Monday night the board of education added one year for Art Tate, through 2019.

His old contract ran through 2018. 

The extension keeps his salary at the current level of 203,000 dollars a year.

Doctor Tate became superintendent in Davenport in 2011. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
