Medford School Board Concerns Over Administrator Pay Raises

By Jim McCoy Wed 10th October NewsMedford School District
Some Medford school board members are upset they have no control over recent pay raises for administrators. Superintendent Phil Long announced a 6.5 percent pay raise in August for 35 of the district's highest-paid administrators. The Mail Tribune reports some salaries after the increase include nearly $84,000 for a middle school assistant principal and more than $119,000 for the director of human resources. Board members said at Monday's meeting the district cannot afford the raises at a time when some schools don't have necessary equipment and it's deadlocked in contract negotiations with classified staff.
