Work was completed on contract negotiations for the Roaring Fork School District executive team at Thursday night’s Board of Education meeting, the district announced.

The board will vote on contracts for Superintendent Diana Sirko and Assistant Superintendent Rob Stein at its March 11 meeting at the District Office in Glenwood Springs.

The contracts call for Sirko to remain superintendent for two years, with Stein in his present position for two years, after which he is to become superintendent for a three-year term.

When Sirko sought a contract extension late last year, many parents in the district expressed worry that Stein would leave. They believed he had been designated as the next superintendent. Sirko initially took the role after Stein stepped aside shortly after being hired because his wife had a serious bicycle accident.

“I am so proud of the teamwork and intense dedication shown by all the players that were part of this process,” said Board President Daniel Biggs. “We have been at this since December to preserve and solidify this leadership team because we believe we have one of the best teams in the state. I want to thank everyone for their time, passion and patience. I also want to acknowledge all the parents and members of the community who shared their views during public comment, one-on-one board member meetings and emails to us.”
