A Tuesday change to Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Jack Smith’s employment contract will grant him an additional $8,000 in reimbursement for his moving expenses.

The Montgomery County Board of Education gave unanimous approval to the amendment, which will bring Smith’s total relocation compensation to $20,000. The decision is budget-neutral, board Chairman Michael Durso pointed out, because Smith is waiving his right to up to $8,000 in disability insurance for one year.

Smith’s four-year employment contract with MCPS commenced July 1. Under the agreement, his annual salary is set at $275,000, and he’s entitled to up to $12,000 in compensation for relocation expenses.

MCPS spokesman Derek Turner said Smith relocated from Southern Maryland to a home north of Rockville for his job as the school system’s superintendent. Smith originally moved into an apartment and asked for the additional $8,000 because he needs a home with more space for his grandchildren when they visit, Turner said.
