School board ratifies contract

It is official — Beth Burton, an Arlington educator, is set to become the Imbler School District’s next superintendent.

The Imbler School Board formally named Burton as the school district’s future superintendent Tuesday night. The board unanimously ratified a two-year contract for Burton, who will also serve as the Imbler Elementary School principal. 

Burton will receive a salary of $80,000 in the first year of her contract. 

Burton will assume her new position July 1. She will succeed Doug Hislop, who is completing his 10th year as Imbler superintendent and 43rd as an educator. 

Burton was named Imbler’s next superintendent on March 7, but her selection did not become official until the board ratified her contract on Tuesday.

Hislop said he feels Burton has a bright future as a superintendent.

“She’s going to do a good job,” Hislop said. “She has a ton of enthusiasm and you can tell she’s a kid person. That is what schools are designed for, to put our kids first.”

Burton, a sixth-year educator, grew up in Northeast Oregon where she attended school in the Weston-McEwen School District from second through eighth grade. Burton was one of 12 applicants for the position and one of two finalists along with Kenneth Cox, the superintendent of the Vernonia School District.

Burton is completing her third year with the Arlington School District, where she is the district’s test coordinator, the coordinator of its early college program, an English teacher and a guidance counselor. 

Burton is a 2004 graduate of Washington State University where she majored in English literature. Burton is a 2008 graduate of George Fox University, where she earned a master of arts degree in teaching.
