Superintendent's pay ranks 8th

A Black Press analysis shows that, at $199,649, Burnaby schools superintendent Claudio Morelli ranks eighth in compensation among his counterparts at B.C.’s 10 largest school districts, taking home less money than number one-ranked Surrey School District Supt/CEO Mike McKay, who made a total of $257,895 in the 2010-2011 fiscal year, once his pension top-up and leased vehicle is included along with payment for unused vacation time.

But Morelli did better than 10th-ranked Julie MacRae, in Abbotsford who was paid $194,176.

The numbers were released Monday Dec. 19 by the Public Sector Employers Council.

The Black Press review of the figures shows the size of the district doesn’t always match the size of the manager’s salary.

While Surrey, the biggest school district in terms of student population, pays its superintendent the highest salary, the smallest school district in the big 10, North Vancouver, paid the second-highest management compensation.

Burnaby, which pays eighth, ranks fourth.
