Details are emerging about San Diego Unified Superintendent Terry Grier’s plan to reorganize administration at the state’s second-largest school district.
Grier’s plan would divvy up the area superintendents’ responsibilities among a larger group of “school improvement officers,” each of whom oversees fewer schools. District spokeswoman Ursula Kroemer described the system as consisting of four chief school improvement officers, one for all high schools, one for all middle schools, and two for elementary schools. A job posting on the San Diego Unified website gives a salary range of $121,805 to $155,177 annually.
Each chief school improvement officer oversees a crew of officers: two officers for the high schools, two for the middle schools, and six for the elementary schools, Kroemer said. The officers will earn between $110,243 and $140,775 a year. According to Kroemer, the reorganization will be cost-neutral because other administrative positions will be eliminated.
