Superintendent Quits To Save Money

KSAL StaffMay 15, 2015

The superintendent of a south-central Kansas school district has resigned so the district won’t have to pay his $81,000 salary.

Superintendent Mike Sanders announced during a meeting Wednesday that he would resign from the Skyline district in Pratt County at the end of the school year.

He says he and the school board had already decided he would be part-time and a consultant next year, but it was apparent the district couldn’t afford his salary.

18 people in the district have been reassigned, had their hours cut or are losing their jobs, saving about $477,000.

Sanders says the district’s financial problems began with the 2008-2009 recession but has not improved. He says the district is anticipating increased costs and further reductions in education funding.
