Sioux Falls School District Superintendent Pam Homan has agreed to a 4.87 percent salary increase next school year, passing up an additional $6,592 increase tied to the new teacher agreement.
The contract Homan signed in 2009 increases her pay each year at the same rate that teachers get. So when the school board reached a five-year deal with the teachers union in April, raising their pay next year by 8.54 percent in most cases, Homan was slated for the same percentage increase.
Homan did not want the $15,339 raise, however. She met with the school board and agreed to take a 4.87 percent raise next year — worth $8,747 — the same rate awarded other school and school district administrators under their new working agreements.
