NEW ALBANY —

“From mine and Bruce’s conversations, I don’t believe this was a situation that was influenced either positively or negatively by compensation,” Hines said. “I think this was an opportunity to solve a personal family situation that would have been beneficial to him, his wife and his family [to move there]. I think that was the overriding factor that even led to him considering this change in position.”

Rebecca Gardenour, New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated Schools’ board of trustees member, said if the board does move to give him a raise again, she won’t give the measure an aye.

“I would not be in favor of paying him more because he’s already one of the highest paid superintendents in the state,” Gardenour said.

Hibbard’s base salary is $170,500.

She said after looking at other jobs, Hibbard should convey his dedication to the district publicly.

“I guess my first thought is that I think he needs to re-establish communications with the community and the board as a result of this,” Gardenour said. “I’m aware that this is at least the third job he’s tried for since he’s been here. I think the community would like to know that he wants to stay. 

“He needs to re-establish that trust with the community that he’s going to stay here.”

Calls to Hibbard’s office Tuesday were not returned by press time.
