School adminstrator salaries in the Port Washington-Sauvkille School District are largely in line with counterparts in the southern half of Ozaukee County, according to data compiled by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Superintendent Michael Weber earned $153,423 last year, directly in between salaries of Grafton Superintendent Jeff Pechura ($154,877) and Cedarburg Superintendent Daryl Herrick ($152,013). Northern Ozaukee's Joe Gassert ($143,750) and Mequon-Thiensivlle's Demond Means ($148,860) are slightly below.
The numbers are from salary information released on the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's website. The data is from the 2011-12 school year.
School districts across the state saw a larger than usual cut in staffing in the 2011-12 school year than in year's past, according to a press release from the DPI, with 2,312 positions being eliminated and 60 percent of those spots being teacher jobs.
"The 2011-13 state budget made historically high cuts to education funding," the press release said. "General school aids were cut by $749 million and the per pupil revenue limit was reduced by $1.6 billion from prior law. These large reductions accelerated the budget and staffing cuts many districts have been making over the years."
Port Washington-Saukville passed a balanced budget for 2012-13 with little to no tax impact, and has not experienced significant staffing changes.
