Managerial School Employees See Wage Boost

Managers in the Shorewood School District will see a 2 percent wage increase, with a total compensation package increase of .82 percent.

Shorewood schools management and supervisorial employees will soon see a 2 percent salary boost in their paychecks.

The increase, approved Tuesday night by the School Board, is retroactive to July 1 and covers the 2012-13 school year. Two Recreation Department supervisors and the fitness center manager will also receive a $1,000 stipend. Board Vice President Colin Plese said it’s important to note the employees will receive the stipends for just the one year.

The 2 percent salary increase results in a total compensation package increase of .82 percent due to a decrease in health care premiums, officials say.

Among district positions receiving the salary increase are

  • coordinator of personnel/administrative assistant to the superintendent
  • business services coordinator
  • accountant
  • computer technician

Last year, managers saw an average 2 percent pay bump, with total compensation increase averaging .56 percent.

The employee group is making contributions to their benefits similar to those outlined in Act 10 — 5.8 percent to pensions and 12.6 percent to health care premiums.
