What school administrators make

Forty-seven administrators at public school districts in Evanston have a base salary over $100,000.

That’s one of the tidbits of information in newly released reports from the districts mandated under a state law passed earlier this year.

At the top of the pay heap, as you’d expect, are the two superintendents.

Hardy Murphy at District 65 makes $261,330 in salary, pension contributions and a housing allowance, plus a 15 percent contribution to a retirement annuity that wasn’t assigned a dollar value.

Eric Witherspoon at Evanston Township High School District 202 makes $242,954 in salary and pension contributions plus a 20 percent contribution to a retirement annuity.

Eric Witherspoon at Evanston Township High School District 202 makes $242,954 in salary and pension contributions plus a 20 percent contribution to a retirement annuity.

The reports show no one other than the superintendents got those annuity payments on top of the regular contributions to the state teachers retirement system pension plan.

At District 65 most principals make around $136,593 — including base salary, retirement system contributions and a small stipend.

Five other administrators, including two assistant superintendents, the human resources director, literacy director and chief financial officer, make slightly more than the principals.

At ETHS there’s more differentiation in salary levels, with a few top assistants to the superintendent earning total compensation between $160,000 and $200,000 and department chairs making between $130,000 and $150,000.
