ROGERS CITY - After Rogers City Area Schools' superintendent received a positive review in December, the district's board president will negotiate a one-year contract extension with her.

Board members voted unanimously Monday to authorize newly-elected President Michael Marx to negotiate an extension into 2016 with Superintendent Kathleen Makowski. She has served as the superintendent since July 2011, two years after starting her job as elementary principal.

"It's nice to know that all the hard work is appreciated," she said.

In December, then-President Bryan Hall said Makowski met or exceeded the board's expectations in seven areas of her job performance.

"As the board said last time, she's doing a great job," Marx said. "We'll negotiate, and hopefully we can keep her around for a few more years and she'll be happy with her contract."

For her part, Makowski is focused on getting to work, she said.

"Let's just keep pressing ahead, and moving towards getting all of our students achieving the best way we can," she said.
