Education board seeks pay raise for superintendent
HONOLULU (AP) — The Hawaii Board of Education will pursue a pay raise for state schools Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi.
Board members will ask state legislators 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 says in a prepared statement that Matayoshi has done an outstanding job realigning the department to achieve objectives of the board’s strategic plan.
