Superintendent Marty Bassett, who currently makes $180,000 per year, will get a four percent raise, which will increase his salary to $187,200. Bassett is just completing his first year as the leader of NPPS. According to NPPS Board of Education records, Bassett’s predecessor Dr. David Engle, refused raises during his three-year tenure. Engle’s salary at the time of his resignation was $160,000 annually.
Tami Eshleman, who was recently promoted to Associate Superintendent, will receive an eight percent raise, which will increase her salary from $121,000 to 130,896 per year. Administrators say the increase in pay is commensurate with the promotion, when compared to similar positions in similar schools.
Board members also noted that it is difficult to make an apples-to-apples comparison with other Districts, because each one functions differently when it comes to the duties and responsibilities of employees.
The Board also granted three percent raises to the principal’s in the district, with the exception of Greg Fruhwirth, who took a one percent pay cut.
Full-time principals will make anywhere from $94,200 to 124,324 per year. The salary for the Principal at North Platte High School may change due to the qualifications and experience of current Principal Todd Rhodes’ replacement. Rhodes’ recently announced his resignation.
The compensation for administrators is their total compensation, meaning that there are no additional fringe benefits such as contributions for health insurance that are not included.
Teachers in the District received a two percent increase in their pay.
