On her blog, school board trustee Ann Sutherland posted a link to a spreadsheet listing 111 raises given to Fort Worth school district central office employees. She did not list any employees’ names, but did include their numbers.
Raises for certain high ranking positions must have board approval. On the spreadsheet, she highlighted 14 pay raises that district officials claim were approved by the board, but only eight of those 14 were actually approved, according to her notes.
She listed an additional 10 raises, three of which were for the district’s deputy superintendents and one for its HCM Manager, that were not approved by the board either.
“As I indicated in an earlier post, Dansby has just awarded these four individuals (and six others) major raises again–asserting, without proof, that the board was notified,” she said on her blog.
She has also asked for a board vote on approving or undoing the raises to be put on next Tuesday’s board meeting agenda.
