New York State Exposed Education: Super salaries

As taxpayers get ready to vote on local school district budgets next month, many parents are wondering if they're getting what they pay for especially when it comes to salaries paid to top administrators.

School superintendents are among the highest paid public officials in the state but are they worth their six figure salaries?

We've obtained the base salaries for all 18 public school district superintendents in Monroe County from the largest, the Rochester City School District, to the smallest, Wheatland-Chili, and all of them make between $158,000-$221,000 a year.

Supporters of those salaries argue superintendents are like CEOs running multi-million dollar operations that require specialized skills but with declining enrollments in most all districts and growing budget constraints, others argue the hefty salaries are becoming unsustainable.
