School adminstrator salaries in the Oak Creek-Franklin School District are largely in line with nearby communities, according to data compiled by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
Superintendent Sara Burmeister made $153,497 last year, the seventh-highest amount out of 19 Milwaukee County superintendents, according to the DPI.
The numbers are from salary information released on the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's website. The data is from the 2011-12 school year.
School districts across the state saw a larger than usual cut in staffing in the 2011-12 school year than in year's past, according to a press release from the DPI, with 2,312 positions eliminated. Sixty percent of those were teacher jobs.
"The 2011-13 state budget made historically high cuts to education funding," the press release said. "General school aids were cut by $749 million and the per pupil revenue limit was reduced by $1.6 billion from prior law. These large reductions accelerated the budget and staffing cuts many districts have been making over the years."
The Oak Creek-Franklin School District budget passed with a levy increase of less than 1 percent and all programs intact.
