Lindbergh superintendent awarded 9.4 percent salary hike


By MIKE ANTHONY

Executive Editor

Superintendent Jim Sandfort has been awarded a 9.4 percent raise for the 2003-2004 school year by the Lindbergh Board of Education.

Board members voted unanimously to extend Sandfort's contract through the 2005-2006 school year.

Sandfort is being paid $145,000 for the 2003-2004 school year, a 9.4 percent increase from the $132,500 he was paid during the previous school year. Sandfort was paid $122,500 for the 2001-2002 school year and $117,330 for the 2000-2001 school year.

As superintendent, Sandfort also receives additional benefits, including paid family insurance and a monthly travel allowance.

The Board of Education voted in 2000 to adopt a 100-percent, performance-based compensation system to determine the salaries of all administrators except for the superintendent.

The system, based on those used in the private sector, ties compensation to performance and to an index based on the average of salaries paid by five "benchmark'' school districts to ensure Lindbergh's salaries remain competitive with districts competing for the same personnel.

The benchmark districts include Kirkwood, Mehlville, Parkway, Pattonville and Rockwood.

For the 2003-2004 school year, the overall increase in the district's budget for administrative salaries is 3.8 percent.

Excluding the superintendent, individual pay increases range from 2.5 percent to 8.5 percent based on the placement of salaries above or below the benchmark districts and performance. With the exception of the superintendent, administrators receive the same benefits as other employees, such as an individual employee insurance package that includes health, hospitalization, dental, vision and life benefits.
