During the contentious discussions about the 2011-12 School budget which included cuts to personnel and busing services, the BOE and administration announced that they would freeze salaries for the Superintendent and Assistant Superintendents.
Official salary data reported to New York State suggests this never happened.
The salaries for the the Superintendent and the Assistant Superintendents increased in the 2011-12 budget year and then increased again in the current year.
Assistant Superintendents' Salary
Once again the Board of Education failed in its duty to oversee the School District’s finances. Worse, the Board sent home a “School News” flyer that appears to have lied to the public.
The flyer stated, “The Proposed Budget Includes the Following Cost Reductions: A salary freeze for the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendents, Managerial & Confidential unit members.”
The citizens of New Rochelle voted YES on that budget believing the salary freezes were real.
