The Groveport Madison Board of Education approved a new contract for district Superintendent Jamie Grube in a split vote.

The board voted 3-2 to approve the contract with Board President LaToya Dowdell-Burger, Board Vice President Seth Bower, and board member Libby Gray voting for the contract while board members Kathleen Walsh and John Kershner voted against the contract.

The board first amended Grube’s current contract, putting changes into effect beginning Aug. 1, 2024 and ending Aug. 1, 2025. The board then approved a five year contract to go into effect on Aug. 1, 2025 that will last until July 31, 2030.

Grube’s previous contract had a base salary of $175,000 with a three percent increase each year. His current amended contract and new five year contract lists an annual salary of $190,000 with a three percent increase each contract year.

“Superintendent Grube’s raise places him in the bottom quarter among the 16 school districts in Franklin County,” said Groveport Madison Communications Director Kaitlin Duncan.

Other highlights of the superintendent’s contract include:

•An annual mileage allowance of $3,600 ($300 per month).

•The board will provide the superintendent with an annuity valued at 13.5 percent of his base salary each year. The annuity will be available upon his retirement.

•The superintendent will receive up to 30 vacation days and five personal days as well as accumulate 1.25 days sick leave per month of employment.

Grube first served as Groveport Madison deputy superintendent from July 2018 until July 2022. He became interim superintendent in July 2022 and in August 2022 he was named superintendent.
