The only employee that any Board of Education has is the Superintendent. Therefore, compensation for superintendents is in their hands.
Yesterday, I wrote that I had heard a rumor that Dr. Dance is being paid over $20,000 for one week's work in June 2012, the month before his contract begins. I now know that Dr. Dance is being paid over $20,000 for one month's work.
My question now is why does the Board of Education need to pay two superintendents for the Month of June I am operating under the assumption that we are operating in a climate of shrinking finances for education. I do not think that it is coincidental that the payment for June 2012 is in the $20,000 range since this is about 1/12th of Dr. Dance's negotiated annual salary.
I still think that this may be less than forthright way of paying Dr. Dance to relocate.
