1 percent raise OK’d for Manchester school chief
The board voted 10-4 at its meeting Monday to support the raise, following the recommendation of the Coordination Committee, which voted on the contract earlier in the day.
The board had already voted to support renewing Livingston’s contract in December, along with those of the district’s other top three administrators. Any salary increases in the second year of the contracts were put off until the spring.
Livingston is completing her first school year as superintendent, during which she has taken on several ambitious initiatives, including new academic standards, redistricting and rewriting the district’s policy manual. Livingston has faced some criticism in recent weeks, including from Mayor Ted Gatsas, over her handling of a federal review of racial disparities in the district.
After the committee meeting Monday, Gatsas said he remained supportive of the superintendent.
The board did not consider pay increases for Assistant Superintendents Dave Ryan and Karen Burkush or Business Administrator Karen DeFrancis, but they are expected to do so in the near future.
