Times News: ABSS superintendent among state’s highest paid

He’s not just “among the highest paid“, I believe the $330k total makes him THE highest paid in the state of North Carolina.


According to The (Raleigh) News & Observer’s WakeEd blog, in October the highest-paid district superintendent in North Carolina was Heath Morrison at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, the state’s second-largest district with more than 142,000 students. He made $288,000 and left CMS under a cloud last fall.

ABSS, the state’s 16th-largest district with about 22,500 students, is closer in size to 17th-largest Iredell-Statesville Schools, which pays Superintendent Brady Johnson $179,700 per year.

A superintendent’s tenure also has something to do with pay. Robeson County Schools, the 15th-largest district with more than 23,000 students, pays Johnny Hunt $228,000, including about $8,500 per year in longevity pay. Hunt has been superintendent since 2006. 

Neighboring Guilford County Schools, the third-largest district with nearly 72,000 students, pays Superintendent Maurice “Mo” Green $250,000 per year. Green just turned down a 3 percent raise for the sixth time, according to GCS.
