Lexington, S.C. — On October 1, 2019, the Lexington County School District One Board of Trustees met in executive session to conduct the 2018–2019 performance evaluation of Superintendent Gregory D. Little, Ed.D.
In that evaluation, the board reviewed what has been accomplished under Dr. Little’s leadership over the last 12 months and during his tenure. After that comprehensive review, the board recognized Superintendent Little’s ‘outstanding performance,’ in meeting or exceeding a host of benchmarks set by the Board of Trustees.
As the result of his outstanding job performance evaluation, the board took the necessary steps to extend the superintendent’s contract term for an additional year which carries him through June 30, 2025. They also agreed to provide an annual salary of $214,751 (a 1.0 percent increase plus 1.5% step, the same 2018–2019 percent increase provided to other district administrators); and to specify that he receives a yearly annuity contribution of 9 percent of his annual salary, a one percent increase.
The board did ask Dr. Little to continue to focus on his personal communication with all of the district’s constituencies and to continue to pursue the vision and goals of the strategic plan.
After the meeting, Boardmember Dr. R. Kyle Guyton added, “He is the right guy for the job. He does it well and is respected by his peers.” Board Member Tim Oswald said, “Dr. Little has made excellent progress. I am very excited about his energy and enthusiasm. He has made great progress by reaching out to students, staff, and community.”
