Pasco County Schools superintendent takes a pay cut
In following newly established Florida law for elected superintendents, the School Board reduced Fiorentino's pay rate as recommended by the Legislative Committee on Intergovernmental Relations by $2,376. She now makes $134,401.
In 2008, Fiorentino earned $136,776.15.
Appointed superintendents do not face a similar mandate for pay cuts, although the Legislature did urge School Boards to reduce their top administrators' pay. In Hillsborough, superintendent MaryEllen Elia volunteered to reduce her $257,958 salary by 5 percent.
