Tight budget said reason for
no administrators' raises

No Brandywine School District administrators received pay raises this year.

Delaforum's annual survey of the district's administrative payroll found that the addition of four additional assistant principals was offset by one district-level administrtor and one assistant principal leaving. As a result, the total administrative payroll increased by just under one-tenth of one percent.

The total administrative payroll was just over $8 million. Of that $3.9 million went to district-level administators and $4.1 million to school-level administators.

Salaries of state employees are in the public domain under the state Freedom of Information Act.

"This is the third [fiscal] year that salaries have been flat," said chief financial officer David Blowman. Two years ago, there was an across-the-board 1% reduction to partly satisfy the state's requirement that employees 'give back' a portion of their pay to help meet the fiscal crisis. That was restored last year.

This year, Blowman said, doing away with annual pay raises was required by the tight district budget. "We were stretching to make it last five years," he said. That was a reference to the district's having gone three years without an increase in the current-expence component of its real estate tax rate and five since the rate ceiling as set at referedum. The district is planning a tax referendum in March to raise the ceiling.

"They (district employees) recognize the environment we're in." he said.

He added that the district intends to "pass-through" the 2% pay increase authorized by the General Assembly to restore previous 'give-backs'. That takes effect Jan. 1 and will apply, he explained, to just the state portion of administrators' and teachers' salaries.

Here is the administrative payroll provided in response to this year's Delaforum request:
