Chief PIO at SDUSD would make up to $192K, if approved

Board meeting 5:00 p.m. Tuesday

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Unified School District could be giving increases in salary to some key positions if board members approve items on the agenda for the 5 p.m. meeting on Tuesday.

The district could create a new position called "Chief Public Information Officer." The salary grade would be 50, with an annual salary range of $150,770 up to $192,392.

The agenda says this new position would not cost the district extra money because two other positions would not be filled.

According to the agenda, the chief public information officer would report to the superintendent and "provide proactive, collaborative leadership in the development, implementation, and communication of the district's mission, vision and priorities among all education stakeholders."

Team 10 has some outstanding public records requests and is not often granted on-camera interviews. It was not immediately clear if this newly created position would make information more readily accessible to the media.

The district would also create a new position called "Chief Innovation Officer," in the same pay range. The position would replace the innovation and technology officer positions.

"Savings from the two positions being eliminated will fund the salary difference," the agenda says.

Also on the agenda are the possible pay raises for the district's six area superintendents.

They would receive a retroactive pay increase of "approximately $5,874.77 for July 1, 2014 through July 30, 2014," according to the agenda for the meeting. The area superintendent salaries would go from pay grade 41 to 44 and would put their annual salaries at $130,305 to $166,005.

The district's executive director of facilities, planning and construction would get a new title and a pay raise, if the board approves the agenda item Tuesday evening.

Lee Dulgeroff would go from salary grade 44 to 50, or $150,770-$192,392. His position would be renamed to "Chief of Facilities, Planning and Construction."

Dulgeroff oversees the district's bond programs, worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

The SDUSD changes are listed under Section H, Item 13, on the district's agenda, which is posted online. (Mobile users: http://bit.ly/1pp4A7b)
