Pennsbury Superintendent Gets $10,000 Raise

The superintendent will now make $180,000. Do you agree with the raise?

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.

What's your take on McHugh's $10,000 raise? Tell us in the comments.

Really this guy deserves a raise for doing his job?! We all do our job we should all get raises. And where did this money come from? They can't approve teachers and support staff Contract but they can approve a raise for this guy. I am sickened by this. We need new school board.. all of them need to be replaced. Guess my taxes are going to go up now to pay for this.

After the derogatory treatment I received from this idiot after having to go through Taylor's obstacle course to get my daughter enrolled (when we live right down the street), he should have been fired, not given a raise. I was told "You are not a lawyer, you don't know the law". Well, apparently I know the law better than he does. I even addressed the school board at a meeting, deaf ears on every single one of them, as the ILLEGAL practices that violate not only their policies but state law are still ongoing.

Isn't it amazing that public officials get raises and people like me who deserve raises in the private sector haven't gotten raises in 4-5 years and the taxpayers are expected to foot the bill when they haven't gotten increases in their pocketbooks?

Dr. McHugh has done a good job as the Superintendent of the Pennsbury School District, however, I cannot support any salary raise for him at this time as the school district's teachers continue to work without a current contract. I am always amazed that taxpayers seems unconcerned that administrators continue to receive fair compensation while the educators that have direct contact with our children daily are not afforded the same courtesy.
