Windsor Locks Schools Superintendent Given Three Percent Raise

The Windsor Locks Board of Education thanked Sweeney for leading the school district and the accomplishments he achieved during the year.


The Windsor Locks Board of Education Thursday raised Superintendent of Schools Wayne C. Sweeney’s salary by three percent and extended his contract.

“Mr. Sweeney has demonstrated that he is an extraordinary educational leader,”  board members said in a joint statement.

Sweeney’s salary will be increased to $159,650. He has been superintendent since December 2010 and is in the middle of a three-year contract.

The board lauded Sweeney’s leadership in helping develop curriculum, providing more time for teachers to evaluate data on students, an extended school day and year in  2012-13 and gaining the respect of stakeholders in the school system. He was also commended on his approach to the budget and his presence at school and community events.

Board Chairwoman Patricia King said in addition to the board’s own evaluation comments were solicited from school faculty and staff. King said there were seven pages of positive comments included in Sweeney’s evaluation.

“I can’t make enough positive comments,” King said. “Everything through his visionary leadership and his participation in the storm emergency services.”

Sweeney thanked the board and said he wished both his parents were alive to see the board’s comments.

“They wouldn’t believe it,” Sweeney said. “It’s really my privilege to serve you.”
