Haverhill School Committee members may decide tonight whether to award the school superintendent a salary bonus.

School Committee member Richard J. Rosa placed the matter on the agenda, along with a review of Superintendent Margaret Marotta’s goals for the current school year. The two matters go hand-in-hand as, bonuses are tied to meeting goals. According to Marotta’s contract, the superintendent receives a base salary of $194,000, but is also eligible for a 1-4% bonus annually for meeting goals set by the School Committee. The bonus does not add to the base salary for determining the value of any future increase.

The School Committee previously determined Marotta had met the goals before her.

The School Committee is also expected to hear an update on ALICE—short for “Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate”—training, as requested by School Committee member Scott W. Wood Jr. ALICE is one of several safety protocols adopted by schools to keep students safe in the wake of mass shootings and other incidents of school violence.

As a public service, WHAV will carry the Haverhill School Committee live, beginning at 7 p.m., from the Theodore A. Pelosi Jr. City Council Chambers on the second floor of Haverhill City Hall.
