If you are a taxpayer in the Fairfield-Suisun School District and concerned why sports, music and student transportation were on the chopping block, and about the closure of a very important intermediate school, then the 2012 Salary Survey of the Fairfield-Suisun School District that is posted on the Vacaville newspaper’s website is required reading. Doing some arithmetic, you will find that almost $6 million in salary and benefits are spent on district administrators who commute to the castle on the hill each day.
The survey will also reveal that the $6 million figure did not include the principals and vice principals of the high schools, intermediate schools and elementary schools. There are also five principals of the alternative schools that are currently operating in the same district as elementary schools that were closed to save money.
