GOLDEN — All five members of the Jefferson County Public Schools Board of Education voted Tuesday afternoon to name Jason Glass the new superintendent of Colorado’s second-largest school district, awarding him a $265,000-a-year pay package — the highest base salary of any superintendent in the state.

“It’s time for us to set a new course,” said board member Brad Rupert to a mostly full room at district headquarters in Golden.

The reception in the room for Glass — steady applause and a standing ovation — couldn’t have been more different than what greeted outgoing superintendent Dan McMinimee when he took the same job three years ago under a completely different board. That night in 2014, people in the audience derided McMinimee for what they claimed was a lack of experience and credentials, and two members of the board voted against hiring him.
