1733 - Board Member Compensation

Policy: 1733
Section: 1000 - Board of Directors


Board Member Compensation

If authorized by board resolution, at a regularly scheduled meeting, each board member may receive compensation of fifty dollars per day or portion thereof for attending board meetings and for performing other services on behalf of the school district, not to exceed four thousand eight hundred dollars per year. Such compensation will come from locally collected excess levy funds available for that purpose, and will not cause the state to incur any present or future funding obligation.

Any board member may waive all or any portion of his/her compensation for any month or months during his/her term of office, by a written waiver filed with the district. The waiver may be filed any time after the director’s election and before the date on which the compensation would otherwise be paid. The waiver will specify the month or period of months for which it is made.

Since the directors of a school district are municipal officers who fix their own compensation, they may not increase their own compensation during their current terms of office pursuant to Article 30, Section 1, and Article 11, Section 8 of the State Constitution.

The compensation provided in this section will be in addition to any reimbursement for expenses paid to such directors by the school district.
