(Tulsa-AP) -- Tulsa's new school superintendent will get a bonus of up to $100,000 if he meets all his goals after three years. The payment is included in a contract that with perks could give David Sawyer more than $200,000 a year.

The contract was signed late yesterday and includes a base salary of $150,000 annually. Sawyer was hired last month to succeed John Thompson, who left earlier this year to become superintendent at Pittsburgh Public Schools. Sawyer had been superintendent of the schools in Brevard County, Florida, for more than six years.

School board member Doug Dodd says the one-time bonus payment would be dependent on school achievement. He says area businesses will pay for the bonus.
