PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey school board has approved a contract extension for a school chief singled out by Gov. Chris Christie for seeking a salary well above a pending superintendent pay cap.
Hours later, the Parsippany school board approved a five-year contract extension for Seitz. It will boost his pay to more than $234,000.
Under a new pay scale to take effect Feb. 7, superintendents would earn $125,000 to $175,000, depending on enrollment.
Seitz told the Daily Record of Parsippany he’s not sure why the governor zeroed in on his contract when other districts have done the same thing.
