Current Greendale Superintendent John Tharp makes about $8,000 less than former Superintendent William Hughes. Check out how much your school principal makes.
The numbers are from salary information released on the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's website. The data is from the 2011-12 school year.
School districts across the state saw a larger than usual cut in staffing in the 2011-12 school year than in year's past, according to a press release from the DPI, with 2,312 positions being eliminated and 60 percent of those spots being teacher jobs.
"The 2011-13 state budget made historically high cuts to education funding," the press release said. "General school aids were cut by $749 million and the per pupil revenue limit was reduced by $1.6 billion from prior law. These large reductions accelerated the budget and staffing cuts many districts have been making over the years."
Tharp was recently hired in August as Greendale's new superintendent, replacing longtime Hughes.
