Those in attendance at Monday’s Canon-McMillan School Board meeting applauded the unanimous decision by directors to appoint Michael Daniels as its permanent superintendent.
A three-year contract with Daniels was approved and became effective Monday, with his first-year salary set at $135,000.
Daniels has performed as an acting superintendent since former Superintendent Helen McCracken first went on leave and then resigned her position.
Several board members thanked Daniels after the vote Monday.
“We appreciate what you’ve done for us this last year,” board President Darla Bowman-Monaco said.
“Thank you very much,” Daniels responded with smile.
