Texas House Public Education Committee: Superintendent Salaries....


Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”
1 Corinthians 15:33

Now that the Texas House's committee assignments are out it's worth asking...just how much are the Public Education committee members' local ISD superintendents making?!?

[Note on Methodology I: ISD listings are taken from the "school districts" tab on the member's House website; Salary information is taken from the Texas Education Agency's "Superintendent Salary Reports" page.]

[Note on Methodology II: Texas Education Agency data only covers base salary.  Determining total compensation would require a time consuming series of open records requests.  Thus, all numbers in this post is are low-balls.]

[Note on Methodology III: Texas Education Agency data is current as of October 2015.  As you will see, a number of school districts have hired new superintendents since then.  Where data is easy to find, we've included a time frame of when the current superintendent came on board...but it's not always easy to find.]
