(KTVI)-Throughout the year You Paid For It investigator Elliott Davis has shined a light on the high pay of area school superintendents. At a time school districts are forced to slash millions from the budget, superintendents in districts across the St. Louis region are getting hefty pay hikes. Many are making well over $200,000 a year. From the Rockwood school district to Parkway to Riverview Gardens, residents are asking questions and so is the Your Paid For It Team.
In the Metro East, nowhere has the issue of high paid administrators gotten more attention than in the failed East St. Louis school district. The last superintendent was sent packing, but not without some taxpayers funded goodies.
