Salaries Of Superintendents Raises Will No Longer Be Automatic But Will Be Earned Based On Student Performance

boe new buildingGov. Chris Christie yesterday made good on his plans to introduce rules limiting how much school superintendents are paid — an action that would shave $9.8 million off the salaries from about 360 school executives when their contracts expire. Superintendents would see their salaries tied to the number of students in each district under the proposed rules, but could earn bonuses based on student performance under terms set by the school board, according to Christie’s office. The bonuses would last for a year and would not count toward pensions.

“Raises will no longer be automatic but will be earned, based on how students are performing in a school district,” acting Education Commissioner Rochelle Hendricks said. Full story in Star Ledger.

  1. Christie is NOT a career politician but someone who actually is governing with common sense unlike our senators who have given us along w Obama new banking regulations to “protect” us no more free checking, free overdraft protection, higher utility costs because of cap and trade, healtcare that wil cause(whoever) in Lkaewood who pays
    insurance to pay more for it.

    With protection like this who needs the career politicians!
    Go Christie!

  2. this is so far one of the smartest things i’ve heard from the Christie administration in a long time! With all the funding for services from the BOE getting cut drastically, why should the superintendents receive their hefty raise each year? There is obviously a lack of funds. Our children suffer and the superintendents shouldnt be the ones to gain by our children not getting serviced.

  3. #2 you will be the next one we read about stealing from your district!!!!! and your district in probably one in need of improvement, are you scared?
