Motion Minutes: 

Dr. Binggeli took this opportunity to congratulate the newly appointed administrators listed on Item F-5.

Dr. Murray requested information on the job classification and pay grade for the area coordinator position.  Debra Pace, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources, explained that when the area coordinator positions were added to the district leadership organizational chart, it was not determined in advance that the district was over the limit for senior management class. Which is a 2 percent deferential in the Florida Retirement system.  Ms. Pace went on to explain  the senior management limit is based on student population. Currently, due to the declining enrollment, we are over that limit. Ms. Pace explained the supplement that each of the area coordinators are currently receiving due to the overage in our senior management class.

Mr. Ziegler stated that he would have further questions but would defer due to the impending meeting.
