Limiting Severance Packages for Superintendents
H.3092 is a refiling of a bill from 2011. The bills prohibit the total value of a severance package given to a superintendent in connection with terminating his contract from exceeding the total value of his compensation received annually under his contract. As reported by the Nerve the bill was originally prompted by a severance package given to a superintendent that exceeded $400,000. Considering the lucrative contracts to which many superintendents are signed, this would be a wise way to prevent waste of taxpayer dollars. Taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to pay an extravagant fee to remove underperforming education administrators.
