TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Amphitheater governing board voted unanimously Tuesday to hire Todd Jaeger as the district’s new superintendent.
 
As soon as the announcement was made, Jaeger received a several verbal “welcome home” messages from the board and a standing ovation.
 
The current superintendent, Patrick Nelson, is retiring June 30, 2017.
 
Right now, Jaeger works as the Tucson Unified School District’s legal counsel. He has been there for less than a year, but intends to finish out his contract which ends in time to start his new role.
 
Jaeger’s first day as superintendent with Amphitheater Public Schools is July 1, 2017.
 
Tucson News Now obtained a copy of his superintendent contract, which is for three years and states he’ll make a base salary of $172,000 in his first year. That’s about $6,500 more than Nelson.
 
“The number one goal for me is increasing student achievement in the district,” said Jaeger.
 
Jaeger is no stranger to the Amphitheater Public Schools. Prior to TUSD, he spent nearly 20 years at Amphi as associate to the superintendent and general counsel. He also spent time there as the executive director of human resources.

“I certainly know what it means to be part of the Amphi family,” he said. “After leaving for a little while, I am so glad to return and rejoin that family.”
