   As I was talking to some friends at the GOP Caucus last night and was floored when I realized that Barry Newbold (The JSD Superintendant) has a higher salary ($213k per year) than any elected Congress person, Senator, or Governor in the ENTIRE United States, the only elected officials at that level or higher who make more are the President of the United States ($400k per year) and the Vice President of the United States ($221k per year). In my opinion that is beyond ridiculous, why and how could this happen? The Superintendant in the Canyons School District makes $175k per year, if Newbold took a pay cut to $175k per year, to be inline with that or to be "competitive", that would save $38k per year which could pay for another teacher and perhaps a part time aid, the little things do add up...

.

   This is unacceptable, especially when the children of the Jordan School District are going to be having to adjust to the changes of the current budgets issues by losing programs and teacher’s aides, etc.  Do you feel okay with this? Not me, and this is just the tip of the iceberg, more info to come of the fiscal abuse at play in the JSD leadership.

.

   Rumor has it that Superintendant Newbold gets a $250 per month clothing budget, wow (NOT sure this is a fact or not...I am getting the expanded budget for the JSD to see if this is in fact accurate or false, there are many things that could be hidden in the main budget which is vauge in many areas).

.

   Moving on, as most of you know the GOP and Democratic Parties had their Caucus meeting last night and the turnout was huge. My precinct 3524 (link to precinct map) has some new GOP leadership and Delegates (see below):

Least amount $ per pupil doesn't justify

I think some are forgetting that our state also spends the least amount of money per student in the entire country! New Jersey on the other hand, spends in the top five in the nation in which case that makes sense that the supers would make more, don't you think? 
UT spends $5,683 per student from the last report 
TX - $7,818 
IL - $9,555  
NJ - $15,691, ranking in the top 5 of school spending per student! I would say that a school district spending 3 times the amount per student than we do can justify paying their supers large amounts!

is about 175k to 185k, so if the JSD super was paid a "competitive" wage of 185k it would save 28k, which is about the cost of a new/jr. teacher.

I don't think we can't compare apples to oranges. If you want to know if a superintendent is overpaid than look at other superintendent's salaries across the country. Not congressman or other unrelated jobs. 
 
TX has 49 superintendent's that make $200k+ 
IL has 150 superintendent's that make $200k+ 
NJ has 200 superintendent's that make $200k+ 
 
Yes, all these states are struggling as much as us. I think the news of the superintendent's salary is just rather a wake up call for most people in how much this type of profession makes.

My biggest issue with this isn't that he is making so much (although that is concerning), its that he NEVER made a move to take a salary decrease or give anything up during the fight to save our teachers. Do we really want someone like that running our district? No wonder canyons "fired" our district! There are many many people that have sacrificed in their careers to save others and here is a public position taking advantage of taxpayers and even worse, taking advantage of children. Disturbing.
