KCPS superintendent to get several bonuses for signing new contract

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Superintendent Dr. Stephen Green signed a new five-year contract with Kansas City Public Schools and the school district's board has agreed to give him several bonuses based on progress, including a $60,000 bonus just for signing the contract.

Green continues as superintendent of Kansas City Public Schools, signing a contract for a yearly salary of $250,000 for five years.

"In the last two years KCPS has been resuscitated from life support. District finances are healthy, our relationship between the board and superintendent is strong," said Crispin Rea, the vice president of the school board.

"When I assumed this role in August of 2011, I promised that I would put an end to the revolving door of superintendents," Green said.

Green's salary didn't increase, but the school board did agree to several incentives based on how well students' test scores improve each year.

"Bosses offer their employees incentives all the time, we definitely want to do everything we can to push this district to be fully accredited," Rea said.

The test scores pertain to the Missouri Department of Elementary Education's APR Score or Annual Performance Report.

Currently the KCPS score is 84. If the APR meets or exceeds 84, the school district will pay Green a bonus of $10,000. And it will increase each year, if the APR increases.

He could receive a bonus up to $100,000.

The breakdown shows that if the APR exceeds 87, Green would receive a $15,000. If it exceeds 91, he would receive a $30,000 bonus. If it exceeds 93, he would receive a $40,000 bonus. If it exceeds 98, he would receive a $50,000 bonus. If the APR exceeds 112, Green would receive a $70,000 bonus. If it exceeds 126, he would receive a $90,000 bonus and if it exceeds 140, Green would receive a $100,000 bonus.

Andrea Flinders with the local teacher's union, Kansas City Federation of Teachers, said, while they are satisfied with the board and Green's decision to continue, she frowns on incentives.

"One of the things I don't like about incentives is that it implies that people aren't working as hard as they can anyway. You know what I'm saying, everyone in the district is working for our kids," she said.

Green will receive the $60,000 next week. There are also $5,000 to $10,000 bonuses for an increase in students' attendance, enrollment and for a clean audit.
