Eric Chisem, director of non-instructional employment, speaks with Vickie Cartwright after her interview for interim superintendent to replace Robert Runcie.

Vickie Cartwright plans to take over as Broward schools superintendent Aug. 2 with an expected salary of $275,000.

Cartwright, 50, will replace Robert Runcie, 60, whose last day will be Aug. 10. Runcie, who is resigning after this arrest on a felony perjury charge, made $356,000. The School Board agreed last week to hire Cartwright until a permanent replacement is found.

Broward School Board Chairwoman Rosalind Osgood agreed to the terms of Cartwright’s contract in a brief negotiation Monday. The School Board is expected to formally approve the contract Wednesday.
