How much money does Perkins super make?

The word on the street is that Perkins Schools superintendent Jim Gunner recently received a substanial raise. In light of recent staff cuts, it would be interesting to know if this is true. Is it? Tom on Woodlawn Avenue

• July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012: $117,200

VOTENO

Vote NO, stop begging for yes votes, let a few years go by,then try again.

RMyer

Thirteen years have gone by. Waiting will result in higher millage/tax amounts in the future.

Kelly

Nope, voting YES!

I know the folks in Perkins don't care for the super and probably have good reason. However, his salary is actually lower than other supers in the area.

Well, when you look at what he has done you can see why he is the lowest paid!

hahaha! For real!

There are those who don't care for Dr. Gunner. Some have developed that feeling over time. I fear that many who don't care for him have developed their opinion not knowing all the facts, or based on limited information and interaction with him.

There are also those of us who support him and are glad to have him. Hopefully, voter turnout will be better than 40% in August, and November, so that one can truly gauge the public opinion.

I for one have gotten to know the man, and find him to be credible, honest, and dedicated to this community, whether he lives here or not.

I love the Vote NO for Perkins Schools signs in the yards on Bogart Road near Route 4!!! I want one!

Kelly

It looks handmade. Get some spray paint, etc...

PLUS 10% for his "pick up" which you the taxpayer fronts for another $11,720 into his retirement account. Also the "treasurer" receives 10% of your money for her retirement, maybe $8,000 and some change!

Tool Box

Plus all the dinners and lunches he gets to expense. From the looks of it that could be about $200 a day!

Bherrle

Very nice Tool Box. Personal attacks solve a lot of problems - said no one ever.

Hope you made yourself feel better, because the value of your opinion just made a downward move.

Why are there so many articles about Twinkies and Perkins Schools lately on this site?

Really are you ...

Pretty soon twinkies will be all they have on the menu for the kids to eat at Perkins Schools. Kids won't gain weight because the twinkies are smaller portions now.

Madeline10,

How is a NO Vote "for Perkins Schools?" A NO vote will clearly weaken our school district, and community.

Vote YES!!

VOTENO

How many import kids are on free lunches compared to home district kids? Who pays for the free lunches? Will those on free lunches have to pay the pay to play fees? If not, who will pay those fees?

RMyer

ALL participants will pay the fees to participate-the state only requires waiving or reducing fees for free and reduced lunch program students when those fees are related to academics. This was announced a few weeks ago. I believe the free lunches are subsidized by the Federal Government's Free and Reduced Meal Program for school children.

VOTENO

What is the ratio of import students versus district resident students?

RMyer

You would have to contact the board office for that info. I don't have it. Why do you ask?
