The Board of Trustees of the Peralta Community College District voted last night at its regular Board meeting to approve the contract for a new Chancellor, José M. Ortiz, Ed.D.
The Board previously approved Dr. Ortiz’s appointment in May.
“Dr. Ortiz is a seasoned senior administrator with a unique set of skills that make him ideally suited to lead the Peralta Colleges,” said Board of Trustees President Cy Gulassa.
The contract, which is posted on the Peralta Colleges Website, outlines a compensation package for Dr. Ortiz that includes a base annual salary of $260,000 as well as an annual $25,000 District-paid retirement contribution. This compensation package ranks Dr. Ortiz sixth in compensation for Bay Area community college chancellors and tenth statewide.
A detailed press release originally announcing Dr. Ortiz appointment, which includes biographical information, is available on the Peralta Website.
