The highest-paid administrators in the St. Paul School District won't be getting a pay raise in the next two years.
St. Paul's school board approved a two-year contract for administrators, which includes a pay freeze, at last week's meeting. The contract is retroactive to July 1 and will run through June 2013.
"The superintendent and her administrators are quite aware of the funding challenges faced by the district," said Julie Schultz Brown, district spokeswoman. "As I understand it, the salaries for this group haven't changed in three years."
The district currently is negotiating with teachers and is expected to approve a contract with them in the spring.
Superintendent Valeria Silva's contract is expected to be considered after her second annual review in December.
In June, the board approved a budget that slashed $25 million and resulted in 345 layoffs, the consolidation of several programs and the reorganization of the administration.
