San Mateo Union High School District administrators get 5 percent raise
January 16, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff report

Administrators in the San Mateo Union High School District are seeing a 5 percent raise this year.

At a meeting Monday night, the district voted unanimously to give administrators a 5 percent raise for this school year, costing $363,500. The 5 percent amount coincides with the raise teachers’ received in October 2013 since the district follows a “Me Too” funding model, said Kirk Black, associate superintendent of human resources and administrative services. The district employs about 60 confidential workers and classified management, which include directors, principals, assistant superintendents and others.

“We’re in a position where we can afford to increase their pay,” said board President Linda Lees-Dwyer. “They’re hard working and do a really good job. We have strong administrators.”

The “Me Too” model, Black said, is efficient since there is less time spent bargaining, but there’s less flexibility for salaries this way.

Back in October 2013, the district voted 4-1 to give teachers a 5 percent raise for this school year, costing $2,367,500. The negotiations started at the end of the last school year, but the San Mateo Union High School District Teachers Association and the district decided to postpone the talks until the state’s new Local Control Funding Formula was clearer since this would affect the district’s budget.

Administrators received a 2 percent raise last year, Black said.
