Board seeks pay raise for superintendent
HONOLULU – The Hawaii Board of Education will pursue a pay raise for state schools Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports board members will ask state legislators to increase the salary cap for the position.
Matayoshi was hired three years ago and her annual pay is $150,000.
The cap was set by lawmakers in 2001.
The board gave Matayoshi a job review of “exceptional” in the second year of her three-year contract.
Chairman Don Horner said in a prepared statement that Matayoshi has done an outstanding job realigning the department to achieve objectives of the board’s strategic plan.
