Notes (*Approved in cabinet 02/25/2015):

  1. This salary schedule is adopted only for the current school year. Any reference to future lane or step salary increases is advisory only and subject to further approval by the Board of Education based on availability of funds.
  2. *As exempt employees, administrators often work more than 40 hours a week throughout the year. The night time differential stipend compensates the administrator for hours worked outside normal contract hours. As a result, administrators may not trade extra work hours (e.g. nights and weekends), normally expected for the administrator's position, for regular contract time. However, also recognizing that some flexibility is needed in an administrator's work day, administrators may occasionally trade time for unusual, irregular circumstances, if pre-arranged with the administrator's supervisor. The night time differential stipend is taxable. This stipend is not considered for salary placement purposes if an administrator changes positions or levels.
  3. *All administrators are expected to have a personal cell phone available 24/7 in case of emergency District business. Vacation and other personal leave time should be respected whenever possible. Administrators are not allowed to have cell phones or equipment paid for or reimbursed using school/district funds.
