Beatrice Public Schools administrators will receive a 2.08 percent total package increase in their salaries and benefits for the 2016-2017 school year.
The BPS Board of Education approved the measure on a 5-0 vote at its public meeting Monday night. Board member Nancy Sedlacek was absent.
"Our administrators have performed exceedingly well," said BPS Superintendent Pat Nauroth at the meeting. "This is a more fiscally prudent way to proceed," Nauroth said of the percent increase.
Board member Janet Byars asked at the meeting if some administrative positions' salaries could be capped at a certain amount and if other school districts do this. Nauroth said that it's possible and the district can do some research into the idea.
"We can, but the board has also said it wants to pay our administrators well," Nauroth said. "So that's a balance we would have to find."
In the identical measure and salary increase for Nauroth, board president Lisa Pieper on behalf of the board thanked Nauroth for his work with the school district and in the community.
