The Lewiston-Porter School Board appointed Andrew Auer to the post of elementary principal Tuesday night with a starting salary of $93,545. Auer, current principal of Royalton- Hartland Elementary School, is expected to start Nov. 22 and is contracted for four years, said Superintendent Christopher Roser. The board negotiated a 1.5 percent salary increase for next year. Auer was one of two finalists that the board selected after receiving 58 applications. He has held the post in Roy-Hart for eight years, he said, and has been working in education for more than 20 years.
Roy-Hart is currently looking for a replacement and online "help wanted" ads indicate November 3rd as the deadline for resumes/applications.
