Quogue School Clerk Releases Contract For New Superintendent


Quogue School District Clerk Lisa Prosano on Tuesday released the newly inked contract for the district’s new superintendent, Jeffery Ryvicker.

Mr. Ryvicker, who was hired by the Board of Education on June 29, has signed a three-year contract and will earn $180,000, plus benefits, his first year, which began on July 1 and concludes on June 30, 2017.

His salary for the final two years will be determined after Mr. Ryvicker, who most recently served as assistant principal of the E.M. Baker Elementary School in Great Neck, meets with Board of Education members, according to the contract. The document states that around June 1 each year, the board will meet with Mr. Ryvicker and discuss his future salary and benefits.

Under his contract Mr. Ryvicker, who serves as both superintendent and principal of the single-school district, will receive 25 vacation days and 14 holidays. He also receives one sick day per month.

His predecessor, Richard Benson, made $238,718 during the 2015-16 school year, his last before retiring last month.

Ms. Prosano, who said she was too busy last week to share the contract, released it to The Press on Tuesday, about one week after it filed a Freedom of Information Law request seeking a copy of the document.

The contract was signed by both School Board President Lauren Battista and Mr. Ryvicker on June 29—the same day the district announced his hiring at a special board meeting.
