FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Theresa Daem LBUSD 352X488 Reversed

  

     Why calculate your hourly rate?  Because it could help get a raise!
     For many superintendents the end of the school year brings the annual contract renewal. Unfortunately, securing a fair and appropriate compensation increase is more challenging than ever. While the recent reversal of New Jersey’s law capping superintendents’ salaries was welcome news, the pervading notion that superintendents are not worthy of CEO compensation still lingers. The few who have abused trust with outrageous compensation packages have reinforced this perception.
     Recognizing the political needs of board members is a vital aspect of preparation for compensation discussions.  A strong proposal not only includes a compensation increase, it also provides the information necessary for board members to personally and publicly justify its approval.
     For starters, two simple math calculations are often revealing. Take the highest salary on the district’s teacher salary schedule, divide it first by the contracted number of days and then by the contracted number of hours per day. Next, take your salary, divide it by your contracted number of weeks and then by the average number of hours per week (be fair to yourself!) you literally devote to your job. Finally, compare the results.
     Some may consider this a flawed analysis because so many teachers work well beyond their contracted requirements, but the fact is that a teacher’s minimum obligation is defined, and yours is not.  You serve at the pleasure of the board and as needed to fulfill your responsibilities as district leader.
