LCPS announces salaries of upper-level administrators for part 3 years

Las Cruces Public Schools released the salaries of upper-level administrators for the past three years.

The salaries released by the school district show a fluctuation in the Superintendent’s salary since the 2015-16 fiscal year.

In 2015-16, the LCPS Superintendent made $173, 725 and $91,820 the following year, compared to $180,000 in 2017-18.

The Deputy Chief of Operations reportedly made $125,000 in 2017-18.

The announcement comes after a review conducted by the district’s financial department showed the number of administration employees has been flat since the 2015-16 fiscal year, while the combined salaries for the positions increased by about 13 percent.

“Since taking over as Superintendent last year, we have reviewed the tasks and duties of everyone working in Central Office,” LCPS Superintendent Greg Ewing said. “After that review, we eliminated some positions, consolidated others, and made sure all employees’ salaries and titles were commensurate with the actual work they were doing. This has had virtually no effect on staffing levels, but a moderate increase in salaries.”

LCPS has eliminated 25 non-teaching positions since Ewing took over as Superintendent.Some of the those include chief Strategy Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Executive Director of Technology.

The school anticipates to eliminate four more positions from the 2018-19 budget.

LCPS said the review looked at the number of administrative employees and salaries and compared those figures from year-to-year.

According to LCPS, in 2015-16 the district had 36.64 full-time employees in administrative roles at the assistant director level and above, while the district expects to conclude the this year with 36.6 FTEs at that level.
