School district pay increases slightly

The district paid its employees – which include teachers, administrators and support staff – just under $40 million in 2014-15.

Despite teachers’ new contract, Mission Public Schools paid out only slightly more to employees in 2014-15 than the previous year, according to the district’s Statement of Financial Information released Tuesday.

The district paid its employees – which include teachers, administrators and support staff – just under $40 million in 2014-15. That’s up only 0.75 per cent over the previous year, when the district paid employees a total of $39.7 million.

Of that $40 million spent last year, $12.8 million went to the 148 employees making more than $75,000 a year, while $27 million went to those making less than that level. In the the previous year, 144 employees made more than that amount. Of that, 29 administrators made in excess of $100,000 last year. That’s up from 22 the previous year.

Superintendent Bill Fletcher was the highest-paid district employee, making $163,839 in 2014-2015. Secretary-treasurer Wayne Jefferson was the second highest, collecting $153,687. Assistant superintendent Randy Huth made $148,644.

The total pay for Mission’s elected school trustees rose slightly last year to $92,197 compared to the previous year, when the trustees made a combined $90,641.

The election of a new board in November 2014 meant last year’s figure was split among seven trustees, with Jim Taylor – who served as chair prior to the election – earning $18,445. He was followed by Shelley Carter and Randy Cairns, who made $17,760 and $17,633, respectively.
