Superintendent Bailey made excuses for the whopping salary increases for the principals by claming that they had not received sufficient salary increases last year. Inflation was last year 1.6% and every administrator got a salary increase which was  almost three times the inflation rate! It was a hush, hush affair with no mention of the pay increse during the meeting or in the minutes of the meeting.
