At the last Leon County School Board meeting, the Board voted unanimously to award $400,000 in non-recurring pay enhancements to administrative and exempt employees. The action was recommended by Superintendent Rocky Hanna.
TR was told by Chris Petley, the LCS Coordinator of Communications and Media Relations, that the pay enhancement was presented as a non-recurring item for the 2019-2020 year “in preparation for anticipated budget cuts next year.”
A list of the positions that qualified for the enhancement are listed below.
The list includes Assistant Superintendent and Director positions which are paid in excess of $100,000.
The one-time pay enhancement of $1,440 was approved for LCS employees who were not members of a bargaining unit. The item presented to the Board stated that the action “is in accordance with the increases given to members of the following bargaining units: LESPA and Local 1010; District Council 78 International Union of Painters and Allied Trades AFL-CIO.”
The $1,440 will be paid over a three month period beginning in April.
