Pine-Richland Schools Superintendent Mary Bucci Receives 3 Percent Pay Raise
Bucci, whose contract has not been renewed, voluntarily declined a pay raise in the previous school year.
After voting in October not to renew Superintendent Dr. Mary Bucci's contract when it expires, the Pine-Richland School Board voted unanimously Monday to give her a 3 percent pay increase—boosting her annual salary to $139,256 for the 2012-13 school year.
The increase comes more than four months into the school district's fiscal year because the board was waiting for Bucci's evaluation to be completed, board Secretary Tara Bennett said.
The pay increase is retroactive to July 1, the beginning of the school district's fiscal year. Her contract ends June 30.
Bucci voluntarily declined a pay increase for the 2011-12 school year as the district struggled with budget cuts.
During Monday's meeting, School Board President Stephen Hawbaker said the board has discussed the superintendent search in executive sessions.
Bennett said the board has discussed the process of selecting a new superintendent but has not started its search.
