Nettie Collins-Hart

The bonus was smaller this year for Proviso Township High School Superintendent Nettie Collins-Hart.

The D209 school board, along with the district’s Financial Oversight Panel, voted Nov. 19 in a joint meeting to give a $5,000 bonus to Collins-Hart.

Collins-Hart receives a base salary of $218,791.13, according to the compensation report published on the district website. Additionally, she receives a $9,000 annuity and $48,888.60 in other benefits, according to the website.

Her bonus figure was smaller this year than last. In January, 2013, the school board granted her a $20,000 bonus, according to provisions in her contract.

The financial oversight panel and the board will vote soon whether or not to extend Collins-Hart’s contract. Last year, the board voted to extend her contract for two years, but the FOP reduced that extension to one year.
