Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Fort Wayne Community Schools is set to announce who will lead the district.

The school board will vote to hire a new superintendent Tuesday afternoon. The district has called a press conference to introduce the candidate immediately afterward.

The new superintendent will replace longtime chief Dr. Wendy Robinson.

Last week, the school board approved a proposed employment agreement that calls for the new superintendent to earn an annual basic salary of $215,000, with a vehicle and other regular benefits.

The contract also calls for the new superintendent to receive a $10,000 annual performance bonus if their performance is rated as “highly effective” or “effective.”

The agreement runs through June 30, 2023, but may be extended “for a maximum of five additional renewal terms of one year.”

Fort Wayne Community Schools is the state’s largest district with nearly 30,000 students.

Robinson announced last year plans to retire after this school year. She has worked in the district for more than 40 years, and served as superintendent since 2003. She earns a base salary of $210,000.
