Admin pay raises OK'd by board
Administrative salaries decreased about 5.5 percent, Olson said, comparing them to 2012-13. The administrative deals are two-year contracts and the exempt staff are one-year deals. Administrative and exempt staff salaries will not be the only negotiations that are coming. (Times file photo)
MONROE - Administrators in the Monroe School District will get a 2.06 percent raise for next year after the Monroe Board of Education unanimously approved the hike at a meeting Monday, July 22. Exempt staff in the district are also receiving a 2.06 percent increase, including the food service director, buildings and grounds director, director of business services, the assistant to the curriculum director, district nurse and board secretary. Monroe School District Business Manager Ron Olson said even with the salary increases, the district is still saving $90,000 next year because they cut the Monroe Middle School assistant principal position, hired Chris Medenwaldt as the new high school principal and Jeriamy Jackson as the new high school assistant principal.
