McGuire Contract Extended

Moline School District

A vote of confidence for the superintendent of the Moline schools. Monday night, the board of education approved a contract extension for Lanty McGuire.

McGuire was named interim superintendent in June of last year (2015), then in December the board made his appointment permanent with a contract through next June (2017). 

For the current school year his salary is 158,000 dollars, and it will increase by 6 per cent in each of the next two years. 

With the extension, McGuire will lead the Moline School District through 2019.

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.
