The Milpitas Unified School District (MUSD) Board of Education voted to extend Superintendent Cheryl Jordan’s contract on Tuesday. The extension guarantees Jordan her position until June 2022. She will also receive two retroactive pay bumps: a 3 percent increase from July 2018 and a 2.5 percent increase effective last month.

Accounting for the salary hikes, Jordan’s annual salary is now $238,339, according to the board.

The superintendent’s contract also includes a yearly performance review, and the option for the board to extend her contract annually after it expires.

As superintendent, Jordan is responsible for the administrative decisions and day-to-day operations of MUSD for the district’s 14 K-12 schools, and carries out the policy decisions of the district’s board of education.

“I look forward to her continued leadership for many years to come,” said Board President Chris Norwood.
