"The Seattle School Board on Wednesday approved a contract with Maria Goodloe-Johnson, selected last week to be the district's next superintendent.
The three-year contract pays Goodloe-Johnson $240,000 a year. In addition, she will receive $20,000 per year in a retirement fund and a $700-a-month car allowance.
The current superintendent, Raj Manhas, earns $178,000 a year, with no contribution to a retirement fund.
Goodloe-Johnson has yet to sign the contract, but she is expected to do so. The contract vote was 6-0; board member Darlene Flynn was not present."Well, the Board managed to negotiate to the very end of the pay scale plus benefits.
