BOE Votes to Give Superintendent a Raise

Posted June 18th, 2014 @ 2:16pm

State Schools Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi will get a raise next month. Her base salary will increase $50,000  to $200,000 a year - a 33-percent increase. The Board of Education voted on the higher salary in executive session Tuesday. Lawmakers capped the superintendent's salary at $150,000 back in 2000. Some school principals earn more than Matayoshi. Public school teachers criticized the increase in light of the high-stakes performance evaluations their salary increases will be tied to -- including student test scores.
