School principals, assistant principals and other administrators are renegotiating their contract, as the district faces a $61 million deficit over the next two years.
The contract for the United Administrators of San Francisco is being reopened under three conditions presented to the Board of Education on Tuesday: to increase salary and benefits; to review and make changes to the procedures for appointment, transfer and reassignment; and to review and make changes to the evaluation procedures.
The executive director of the administrator's union, Patricia Aramendia, would not discuss the specifics, but said it was “not just about money. There are other things to look at.”
The UASF's three-year contract began this school year and runs through the 2013. According to the current contract, salaries range from $65,000 for administrative interns to about $110,000 for high school principals.
The teacher's union, United Educators Union of San Francisco opted not to reopen contracts this year, knowing the district is running dry, said spokesman Matthew Hardy.
A public hearing on the UASF proposal will be held at the Oct. 13 school board meeting.
