Greenfield hires Harry Ervin as new superintendent

Trustees with the Greenfield Union School District voted unanimously to hire Harry Ervin as their new superintendent at their Feb. 20 meeting. Ervin reportedly has been working to turn around failing schools within the Los Angeles Unified School District for the past six years. The Board received over 120 applicants, and after a site visit to Los Angeles, the Board returned to Greenfield convinced that he was the right person for the job of leading the district.

Ervin replaces Trevor McDonald, who helped turn around Greenfield in his two year tenure. McDonald left the district last summer.

Ervin's initial contract is for three years, and he'll receive $160,000 for 220 days of work per year. He'll receive the same pay increases, medical and retirement benefits as represented employees with the district. He'll have a transportation allowance of $300 a month, $50 for Internet connection at home, $100 for cell phone allowance, and $7,500 for relocation expenses. If you want to take a peek at his contract, here it is.
