Phares' offer followed an interview in open session at 5 p.m. Thursday. The board authorized Phares to negotiate contract details. The board is expected to officially ratify the contract Tuesday.

The contract calls for Ramaekers to receive $190,000 in base pay and $228,800 in total compensation for the 2013-14 school year. He would officially start July 28.

Ramaekers was superintendent at Aurora Public Schools for 14 years, retiring in 2011. He was Nebraska Superintendent of the Year in 2007 and received the Outstanding Superintendent Award in 2010-11 from the Nebraska Rural Community Schools Association.

Phares noted that Ramaekers continues to be a leader of the Nebraska Council of School Administrators and was a member of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (1977-81).

"Many members of staff and administration were able to be in attendance (at the interview) to gain insight on his background, character and professional career path," Phares said. "It is evident that Dr. Ramaekers is a powerful communicator who is passionate about education."

Phares said he will provide the leadership needed to move forward.

"His focus on students was apparent during the interview process, so we know he will have much to offer the district as we work to maintain our mission of Student Learning, Student Achievement, Student Success," she said.

Phares said the board looks forward to Ramaekers' leadership and asked the community to help welcome him to the district.

In addition to the $190,000 base pay, Ramakers will recieve $5,000 in stipends, $776 for dues in professional groups, $1,120 for remimbursement for cell phone and Internet costs. Another $31,904 will cover the district's share of retirement, withholding taxes and Medicare, according to school district records. 

Ramaekers replaces Marty Bassett, who abruptly resigned July 3 after the board voted 4-2 against Bassett's effort to fire long-time teacher and coach Mark Woodhead.
