Hernando School Board to discuss pay raises for school administrators

BROOKSVILLE — Administrators at Hernando County schools could soon be getting a pay raise.

On Tuesday afternoon, Hernando County School Board members will discuss a measure to provide roughly $125,000 in raise money from the state. It would need to come back before the board at a later date for a final vote.

The money is part of a larger pool of roughly $3.7 million allocated by the state for raises for teachers and school-based administrators. The lion's share of the money in Hernando, more than $3.5 million, is being used for teacher raises.

Hernando's school-based administrators will receive an average salary increase of roughly $1,728. Hernando's 1,662 teachers will get a slightly larger increase — an average of $1,844.

Roughly $63,001 will go to pay for raises for assistant principals; $43,657 will go toward increases for principals.

The increase will be retroactive to the first contract day of the 2013-14 school year.

School Board members on Tuesday also will consider a new salary schedule for school administrators that would set the stage for performance-based pay in the 2014-15 school year. The proposal, which creates a single performance pay schedule, mirrors one being considered by Hernando teachers.

School administrators would move up the schedule based on performance evaluations, not experience, as is currently the case. Salary increases would be approved by the School Board annually, based on availability of money in the budget.

The performance pay schedule is set to begin July 1.
