No matter how the board or Mr. Santos spin this, it's still a salary increase.
OK, so the board assumes that Mr. Santos would perform consistently as he has, so they just went ahead and gave him the extra $25 because the performance provision was eliminated. And that extra money was already factored in to the budget so what the hell?
This is what $223,000 sounds like:
"What the board of trustees approved was that I continue to earn the same salary that I received last school year. In essence, I did not receive a pay increase."So your base salary was $223,000?
I really don't have a dog in this race since I don't pay UISD taxes. I'm just amazed at the casual attitude taken by the board and the super.
