Teacher Tension: Strongsville BOE considers raises for administrators

Posted: Updated:

The Strongsville teacher's strike is over, but this fall money will be back on the table. Superintendent John Krupinski wants the Board of Education to give administrators a raise.

The Board argues that principals and other administrators in the area make less than those in surrounding districts.

According to the Ohio Treasurer's website, the average principal makes $80,000 a year. The average principal in Strongsville makes around $82,000 a year, according to online data.

Strongsville teachers were on strike for nearly eight weeks earlier this year. One of the reasons they left the classroom for the picket line was because of money.

"The teacher's got what they wanted, and now the administrator is wanting to get something also," one Strongsville parent told reporter Lydia Esparra.

We reached out to Krupinski for comment, but he couldn't be reached. We also tried to contract Strongsville teacher's union president Tracey Linscott, but she was also unavailable.
