MDUSD School Board extends Superintendent's Contract through June 30, 2025
Posted 7/27/22

The Mt. Diablo Unified School District's Governing Board has extended Superintendent Dr. Adam Clark's contract from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2025, after completing the evaluation of the Superintendent with a satisfactory rating for the 2021-22 school year.


The Board voted 4-0 on June 22, 2022 to extend the contract. Board President Debra Mason was absent.


"I’m very excited about what the next years can bring us," Dr. Clark said after the Board approved the contract extension. "Thank you to the Board for your leadership."


Dr. Clark was originally hired in July of 2020, with a 3-year contract through June 30, 2023 at an annual base salary of $298,000. Last October, the Board voted to extend that contract one year through June 30, 2024 at his original rate of pay.


The newly-approved contract extension increases Dr. Clark's base salary by $7,000 to $305,000 and issues supplemental benefits equivalent to the recent on-schedule salary increase of 10.5% negotiated with bargaining groups.


In 2021-22, Dr. Clark was named "2022 Superintendent of the Year" by the Association of School Administrators (ACSA), Region 6. He was also named "President-Elect" of the California Association of African American Superintendents (CAAASA). 


"He is held in high regard by his peers for being thoughtful and for his unique ability to build consensus among stakeholders with divergent interests during contentious issues," according to the CAAASA website. "Dr. Clark has a laser-like focus on positive outcomes for all stakeholders, which is evident by his commitment to address deeply rooted structural systems."
