The superintendent’s annual maximum salary allowance will increase from $150,000 to $160,000, with a potential annual performance bonus that could reach as much as $90,000 after three years on the job.
The deputy superintendent’s salary cap is being increased to $130,000 from $120,000 per year, with an annual performance bonus of up to $50,000. Assistant superintendents can now make as much as $120,000 per year, with annual performance bonuses of up to $20,000.
The new law allows for complex area superintendents, who oversee several schools in the same geographical area, to be paid an annual salary of up to $120,000, with a maximum performance bonus of $40,000.
The new salary caps will apply during the 2011-2012 school year.
Given the department’s financial struggles — Furlough Fridays are still unresolved — do you think this a good time to increase salary caps?…
