After a unanimous vote from the school board last Thursday, Pennsbury Superintendent Dr. Kevin J. McHugh will be getting a $10,000 pay raise.
Vice President Simon Campbell said at the meeting that McHugh achieved his “established goals and objectives.”
The board members talked of how McHugh has exceeded expectations.
Board member Gary Sanderson said when McHugh took the position he was on the low end of the pay scale.
Since becoming head of the district in 2011, McHugh has dealt with change in administrators, unsettled labor deals and cuts in revenues for the district.
McHugh began working at Pennsbury in the 1990s and worked his way up to the superintendent position. He recently moved from Montgomery County to the area last year.
According to PhillyBurbs.com, the salary before the July retroactive raise was $170,000.
The board also approved the formal appointment of Director of Facilities Scott Millward.
