LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Lee County School District will pay new superintendent Dr. Nancy Graham $169,000 for her first year.

Graham takes over for Dr. Burke officially on Thursday. Her contract will end on June 19, 2014, or until the school board finds a replacement through a national search, whichever comes first.

Her contract also says if the board does not find a new superintendent by May 1, they'll talk to Graham about whether they'll keep her in the position.

Dr. Burke's annual salary was about $185,000. 

Her contract also says the school board will evaluate her performance every three months.
