The Forest Park School District 91 Board of Education presented salaries for principals and administrators for the 2012-13 school year at the board meeting Thursday.

Superintendent Dr. Louis Cavallo will earn a base salary of $188,349. In addition, the district will pay $19,542 in pension contributions for the superintendent, along with an annuity of $4,800.

Assistant Superintendent Ed Brophy will earn a base salary of $122,815 and Rose Gronko, director of Student Services, will have a base salary of $107,461. The district will also pay their pension contributions, amounting to $12,742 and $11,149, respectively.

Grant-White School Principal Wendy Trotter earns $121,400 this year. Because she is retiring in 2014 and gave two years’ notice, Trotter will receive a 6-percent base salary increase during her final two years in the district.

Garfield School Principal Jamie Stauder will receive $109,288; new Field-Stevenson School Principal Tiffany Brunson will receive $115,000.

William Milnamow, Betsy Ross School principal, will get $112,000. At Forest Park Middle School, Principal Karen Bukowski will receive $116,708, and Assistant Principal Michelle Gossett will be paid $69,861.

Administrators are re-hired annually and are not union members. District 91 and the teachers union signed a three-year contract in February.
