The board has complete discretion to set the salary of the administrators. The board shall set the salary and fringe benefits at a level mutually agreeable to both the board and the administrator.
 
It shall be the responsibility of the board to set the salary of the administrators at a level that will include consideration of, but not be limited to, the economic condition of the school district and the training, experience, skill, and demonstrated competence of the administrators. The salary shall be agreed upon at the beginning of each contract period.
 
Superintendent
In addition to the salary and benefits, the superintendent’s actual and necessary expenses may be paid by the district when the superintendent is performing work-related duties. The board may approve the payment of other benefits or items of a superintendent’s contract.
 
Other Administrators
In addition to the salary and benefits agreed upon, the administrator’s actual and necessary expenses will be paid by the school district when the administrator is performing school business. Such expenses will be determined by the terms and conditions of the individual administrator’s contract.
