Abstract

"City" piece on Portland school superintendent Mary Jane McCalmon who is trying to get another round of salary raises for herself and six other top administrators, according to the school department's proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. The school committee created a public furor late last year when it considered giving McCalmon and her top aides raises of up to 25 percent. In January the board acquiesced to public opinion and voted raises of just 3 percent. If the 2000 budget passes as written, the school committee could give McCalmon another 3 percent, and Jeanne Whynot-Vickers, director of secondary education, could get an increase of more than 5 percent. The city council is expected to vote on the school department's budget on May 17.
