Greenville County Schools Superintendent W. Burke Royster’s annual evaluation was completed today.  As a result of his successful performance, the Board granted a one-year extension to his contract through June 30, 2020, a one percent increase to his annuity, and, if any salary increase is included in the FY 18 General Fund Budget, Royster will receive the same.

 “We are extremely proud that Dr. Royster was recently identified as one of Education Week’s Leaders to Learn From,” said Board Chair Dr. Crystal Ball O’Connor, “and the Board looks forward to working with him to ensure the District’s continued improvement.”

 In April 2012, the Board of Trustees approved the initial three-year contract with Dr. Royster as the tenth superintendent of Greenville County Schools, the State’s largest and the nation’s 44th largest school district with more than 76,000 students. Royster’s current salary is $249,238. The contribution to his annuity will increase from 17 to 18 percent of his salary.

Dr. Royster served as the school system’s deputy superintendent from 2005 until his selection as superintendent in 2012.
