ABSS Extends Superintendent’s Contract to 2025
The Alamance Burlington School Board approved a contract extension and a one-time $5,000 bonus for Superintendent Bruce Benson last week. The new contract extends the system’s commitment to Benson until at least 2025. This is Benson’s third contract extension since taking the superintendent’s role in 2018. In other ABSS news, Alamance County commissioners voted to increase the monthly stipend for school board members from $100 per month to $300 per month. The stipend increase is the first for the board in 25 years, since the Burlington city and Alamance County school districts merged in 1996.
