Taylor, who started in 2012, has almost completed two years of a three-year contract, which expires in June 2015.

The board is considering whether to: extend the contract for a year or more; let Taylor’s contract expire as scheduled at the end of three years; or press for an early exit for the educator.

The trigger for the discussion is a provision in Taylor’s contract requiring that the board inform him before the end of his second year, which is June 30, whether it will “extend or not extend” his contract. The idea is to give the superintendent a full year to land a new job if the board doesn’t want him to stay.
