District 118 approves salaries

DANVILLE — Danville District 118 school board members Wednesday approved the recommended salaries for administrators who have not submitted a notice to retire and returning non-union flat-salaried employees.

Superintendent Mark Denman recommended revisions to the salary ranges for several positions “due to increases in the cost of living, economic conditions and the marketplace since 2009.” He said the salary ranges were last updated in 2009.

The salary range for board secretary is now $40,670-$55,024; for treasurer, $30,622-$45,269; for other non-union secretaries, $28,708-$44,312; and for warehouse manager, $38,278-$54,545.

The salary range for assistant principals at the elementary schools is now $65,000-$77,000; at the middle schools, $66,000-$78,000; and at the high school, $67,000-$79,000. The salary range for elementary school principals and the Kenneth D. Bailey Academy principal is now $70,000-$83,000; for the East Park Elementary School principal, $73,000-$87,000; for middle school principals, $77,500-$94,000; and for the high school principal, $95,000-$115,000.

The recommended increases and bonuses total $12,811 for the non-union flat salaried employees and $73,084 for administrators.

The average increases were about the same as the average increases for Danville Education Association members this year, Denman said. Increases also were based upon performance.

The following salary increases are for non-union flat-salaried employees who have not submitted their intent to retire. The salary increases are based on performance and are approximately the same as the average increase for union members.

Jolene Armstrong, payroll clerk, $37,510 from $36,165; Teri Atwood, treasurer/assistant to business director, $45,269 plus $388 merit stipend from $44,019; Melinda Bailey, secretary to the associate superintendent, $44,312 plus $496 merit stipend from $43,201; Letha Caudill, secretary to superintendent, $39,325 from $38,000; Kerry Cranmore, $44,192 plus $15,500 stipend for being energy conservation manager from $42,703; Vicki Jones, human resources secretary, $37,339 from $36,000; Connie Kittell, human resources secretary, $42,340 from $40,821; Gregory Wager, DHS school administration manager, $36,196 from $34,976; and Nancy Wright, secretary to buildings and grounds, $42,163 from $40,834.

The following salary increases are for returning administrators. The salary increases are based on performance and are about the same as the average teacher increases.
