SIOUX FALLS - The new superintendent of Stanley County Schools will be getting a raise over the current administrator's salary.

Dan Martin, who starts in the position in July, will earn $85,000 during his first year, about $6,000 more than the district's current administrator.

Martin's pay will increase to $87,000 during his second year and the salary for this third year will be negotiated.

The school board finalized and approved the three-year contract last week.

Martin is currently the high school principal in the Fremont County School District in Shoshoni, Wyo. He begins in Stanley County on July 1.
