59 Ann Arbor (Mich.) Employees Top $100,000 in 2010

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

A total of 59 employees of the Ann Arbor Public Schools earned more than $100,000 in 2010, the most recent data that's available.

The total compares to 88 in 2009, when 4 percent of the district's then-2,082 employees earned a six-figure paycheck.

The data was posted to the district's website on Friday as part of its mandated transparency reporting.

The difference in the fewer number of employees earning six figures is due to the fact that the 2009 list represented a year with 27 payroll dates instead of 26, according to the district.

The timing of the list's release follows a vote last week by the Board of Education to approve raises for two administrators following the hiring of an administrator from outside of the district who will earn more than her predecessor. That hiring was not approved by the board at the time, but Superintendent Patricia Green asked for retroactive approval last week in addition to the raises.
