A follow-up to my previous post re: my school district may allow the superintendent to double-dip.
Orange rehires superintendent
Orange school district Superintendent Daniel Lukich retired Thursday and was rehired Friday. The school board gave Lukich a three-year contract with a 3.3 percent raise effective July 1. That bumps his salary to $147,325 – a $4,700 raise. Lukich has been superintendent for the past 10 years. Lukich will collect both his pension and salary for his current job, which state law allows. Officials said Orange will save about $20,000 a year because, as a retiree, Lukich is not eligible for health benefits.
Here’s another take. Additionally, Lukich was a candidate for the Dublin schools superintendent position. Here’s what Dublin will pay its new super, former Chagrin Falls Superintendent David Axner. The $170,000 base salary is $23,000 above what Lukich is getting, and the rest, when added in, sounds like a lot more than what Lukich will get, but I don’t know any additional details about Lukich’s package. Note how that article indicates that Solon schools, ranked the #2 school system this year in the Cleveland mag suburbs ranking issue, pays as high or higher.
Glad to keep Lukich in Orange through 6/2010.
