No bonus for Fort Bend school distirct superintendent
Fort Bend school district's chief Tim Jenney has been approved for a 3.25 percent raise by the school board.
That's nothing earth-shattering. The rate of increase is the same as what other distirct employees received in July.
With the raise, the superintendent's salary has gone up to $247,800 from the previous $240,000, according to the district.
Jenney didn't get an incentive bonus, which in his original contract was tied to the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills results, said Nancy Porter, a spokeswoman for the district.
Ten schools performed performed so poorly in the TAKS that the students have an option to transfer out, according to Texas Education Agency in December. . .(follow the link for the full story).
