Mautino Plan To Pay Regional Superintendents Gets Approved

Posted by wlpo on November 10, 2011

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – The Illinois House approved a plan to pay regional school superintendents after Gov. Pat Quinn erased funding for their salaries last summer.

The House voted 74-36 Wednesday to use local property tax funds to pay superintendents and their assistants in 44 regional education offices. It would pay them for just one year.

The measure sponsored by Democratic Rep. Frank Mautino of Spring Valley also creates a commission to determine the best way to continue the duties of regional superintendents. Most superintendents have been working five months without pay.
