Governor Cuomo to Propose School Superintendent Salary Cap


Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that he will submit a bill to cap the salaries of school superintendents across the state.
The cap would be based upon student enrollment and if approved would save a combined $15 million.
The cap will apply only to school superintendents and will be applied as contracts expire.
Local communities will have the ability to vote on overriding the salary cap.
Currently, 223, or 33 percent of school district superintendents earn more than $175,000.
There is already a salary cap in place for BOCES district superintendents.
The BOCES cap sets a single flat salary level at$166,572.
