BOISE, Idaho (AP) - West Ada County School District trustees are divided over whether the superintendent’s contract should be filled with so many perks, while the district struggles to afford teachers and classroom space.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/1ZdU9Wv ) Trustee Julie Madsen considers the perks in Superintendent Linda Clark’s contract as “profane,” and says they were added as the district was falling into recession.

Clark’s contract includes a bonus payment of 20 percent of Clark’s annual salary to be paid upon retirement. Other perks include the use of district funds for a car, a $100,000 life insurance policy and the full cost of health coverage.

Trustee Mike Vuittonet says the board was right in adding fringe benefits to Clark’s contract, because she deserves it.

Clark earned more than $139,000 as superintendent last school year.
