This came in from Dan Wever:
Media people are saying that EPISD teachers to get a 6% raise. I doubt this but the Superintendents salary is tied to teacher raises and here are his annual increase with 4,5 and 6%.
If they get the 6% that will make his base salary $384,546.80 with the $30,000 cash benefits stipend in his contract makes it $414,546.80. He also gets 35 vacation days which he can and must sell back to the district at his daily rate if not used by end of July. This makes his vacation days worth $56,182.74which he usually cashes in. Of course, then you have an $18,000 car allowance and a $14,400 home office annual allowance. Then you add his retirement (TRS) benefits, Medical and Dental care, 1,000,000 life insurance policy a 20,000 dollar annuity and various other perks.
I had said that he was the highest paid superintendent in the State and someone challenged me on the statement showing me the Cypress-Fairbanks Supers salary and then I showed them that that superintendent works 250 days while ours only works 226, however, Cypress guy does have twice as many students.
And do not even try to compare what Cabrera spends on social functions, dues, etc…………………………………You cannot! If he sticks around about 10 more years all the students will be gone and the budget will be his salary! 😦
