Letter: Million Dollar Superintendent

Posted

Wow, I am shocked that the new Jeffco Superintendent will have a 3-year compensation package that is worth over a million dollars! Isn't Jeffco short of money? Wasn't the comment "we need more money" mentioned at practically every school board meeting?

Let's not forget, the school board asked for a billion dollars this past November. In his previous position Mr. Glass had a base salary of $195,000, his new base is $265,000. That's a 35 percent increase and a 20 percent increase over his predecessor. As a reminder, Mr. McMinimee had a base salary of $220,000 and Cindy Stevenson had a base salary of $205,000.

As if Mr. Glass's salary wasn't outrageous enough evidently he can't afford a car because he is also getting $750 a month car allowance ($9,000 a year). He also gets 25 days extra vacation, annual raise equal to consumer price index (regardless if our hard working teachers receive a raise.) and nearly $94,000 in retirement benefits plus a $795,000 life insurance policy. Does he think this job will kill him? And we are going to pay his living and moving expenses for six months. Who does that?

To top it off, there is no bonus for student achievement, none. Both of his predecessors had bonuses tied to gains in student achievement. That is right, for over a decade Jeffco Superintendents have had performance bonuses, but not Mr. Glass. Makes me wonder exactly what Mr. Glass sees as a priority if not student achievement. His contract screams of greed with zero accountability. But let's not forget, it is all for the students. Thank you Jeffco School Board!
