New La. Education Superintendent’s Salary Approved
The contract gets approval. KPEL reported earlier today that new Superintendent of Education John White was set to go before the Joint Legislative Budget Committee for approval of the proposed $275,000 salary for him. Lawmakers have given the contract the ok. The contract also calls for 6% annual pay raises, with a positive evaluation. But Committee he won't take raises unless other conditions are met.
His salary is still $80,000 less than what his predecessor, Paul Pastorek, got. And it's also a reduction in pay from what he made as head of the state's Recovery School District for failing public schools.
