As the budget deficit for District 159 dwindles, salaries for district administrators could see a bump in the next fiscal year, according to the district's proposed budget for FY2013.
Although the board has yet to approve the new budget, board members got a glimpse during its July 18 meeting.
Included in the preliminary budget, were the proposed salaries for district administrators, including Superintendent Steve Stein, Assistant Superindent of Instruction Dr. Charles Vitton, the open Business Manager position and more.
Below are the FY2012 unaudited salaries for all administrators and the proposed salaries for the FY2013 year. Note that the salary of the Director of Student services reflects only 120 days of work, and not the entire year for FY2012. The FY2013 number reflects an entire year of work within the district.
Stein noted that all salaries within the district, excluding his, are being raised by at least 2 percent.
"What the board agreed to, and this was in the board packet a month or so ago, was a 2-percent incresase for non-certified staff," Stein said. "That reflects the same increase that the teachers will be getting for next year. Then for administrators that have been in the district, excluding myself ... they also receive a 2-percent increase, as well."Position FY2012 Salary Projected FY2013 Salary Superintendent $120,000 $130,000 Assistant Superintendent of Instruction $105,000 $109,502 Director of Business Operations $79,550 $100,000 Director of Student Services $60,000 $100,000 Director of Technology $55,000 $56,1000 Director of Transportation $52,447 $54,225 Director of Food Services $37,669 $38,999 Director of Building and Grounds $62,294 $63,540
