Lindbergh superintendent receives 8.6 percent raise for 2004-2005


Superintendent Jim Sandfort has been awarded an 8.6 percent raise for the 2004-2005 school year by the Lindbergh Board of Education.

Sandfort is being paid $157,500 for the 2004-2005 school year, an 8.6 percent increase from the $145,000 he received for the 2003-2004 school year. Sandfort, who has been with the district 13 years, was paid $132,500 for the 2002-2003 school year, $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 2004-2005 school year, the overall administrative salary increase is 4.7 percent. Excluding the superintendent, individual pay increases range from 2 percent to 6.8 percent based on performance and comparable compensation relative to the average of the benchmark school districts.

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.
