Dr. Mary Elizabeth Davis will remain under contract as Henry County’s superintendent of schools for three more years.

The contract of Henry County schools superintendent Dr. Mary Elizabeth Davis has been extended by the Board of Education for the full 36-month term allowed by Georgia law, after a unanimous affirmative vote at the board’s Dec. 9 regular meeting.

The terms of the contract are not changed from what was previously adopted earlier this year, with the exception that it is now in effect through Dec. 2022, according to a statement released by the district two days after the meeting. Davis was first named superintendent in October of 2017 and started on the job the following month. She began at that time with a three-year contract at $213,000 per year, but that contract was terminated and a new deal which took effect in March of this year calls for a $300,000 annual salary over the same length of time.
