Below are the answers to your questions 

1) Section 2.2 of the contract says the district will pay membership 
dues and fees so that the superintendent can belong to professional and 
civic organizations.  What is the value of that benefit for the 2010-11 
school year?  

 $2,485

2) Section 3.4 of the contract says the district will supplement 
payments to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas.  What is the value 
of that benefit for the 2010-11 school year? 

 $21,150

3) Section 3.7 of the contract says that the district may contribute an 
annual lump sum to a service purchase tax deferred plan.  How much was 
paid to the superintendent after the first contract year and when?  (If 
this is not the most recent payment, please specify what was, both the 
value and the date of payment.)

 $30,000 Paid in January 2011

4) My understanding from the final pages of the contract was that the 
performance incentive (section 3.12 of the contract) paid to the 
superintendent was $18,333 at the end of the first contract year.  Is 
that total correct?  When was the payment made? 

 The amount was $18,001 and he was paid in January 2011.
