Oswego 308 Board Approves 1 Percent Raise for Administrators

Increase comes after administration took a salary freeze in 2010 and began contributing towards medical premiums in July 2012.

The Oswego 308 Board of Education voted unanimously following a closed session of the Feb. 11 board meeting to approve a 1 percent retroactive salary for 52 of the 82 District 308 leaders.

The decision was made after the district reported a reduction of more than $700,000 worth of administrator salaries and benefits in the last year, as well as noting that district and building administrators took a pay freeze in 2010 and began contributing 20 percent of medical premiums in July 2012.

The 1 percent increase will be applied to base salaries for qualified administrators and will be retroactive to July 1, 2012. New administrators to the district this year or those in a different board-approved administrative role will not qualify for the increase.

Did they get Leland Hoffer's approval on this?

At least the new administrators were not included. Those salaries should be frozen until we see some real progress in the education of our students.

Perhaps we ought to turn our eyes toward home. There are plenty of parents who are not doing all they can to see that their children are coming to school prepared, homework done and ready to learn. I cringe at the number of times that we have had teachers basically begging parents for participation in their children's homework. And this is at one of the so-called award-winning schools in the district. It's time parents start accepting responsibility instead of expecting the schools to do it all. You might not be one of those folks, but there are plenty of them out here in D308.
