Agenda Item #49
2013-2014 Salary Adjustment for School Board Members
Annually the Florida Office of Economic and Demographic Research calculates salaries for all constitutional officers, as prescribed in Florida Statute 145.19. Per this calculation, School Board Member’s salaries for 2013-14 would change to $39,773 (see attached).
However, Florida Statute 1001.395(2) authorizes School Board Member to voluntarily reduce their statutorily calculated salary. Since 2008-09 the Board has voluntarily chosen to freeze their salaries at a level equivalent to that of a beginning teacher and not accept the higher calculated amount as required by law.
As a point of interest, also attached is a state-wide listing of salaries for elected County Officials prepared by the Florida Office of Economic and Demographic Research.
Continue, until further notice, the practice of voluntarily freezing School Board Member’s salaries to be equivalent to that of a beginning teacher. This change will be retroactive to July 1, 2013.
