The Brigantine School Board just approved a 2 percent tax increase over last year. Nice.
According to reports in the Beachcomber News, residents are not happy. Scratch that. They are FURIOUS about the plan to hire a new school superintendent with a salary of $117,500, as well pay for two principals (elementary & middle school at approx $100k each), a curriculum administrator and a business administrator.
Anne Phillips; the Patron Saint of Brigantine Taxpayers, wondered why we need five high paid administrators …..as student population continues to decline.
Some new expenses for district include: new computer lab, new van to replace damaged one, a $760,000 upgrade school security system and $30k to replace five Smartboards.
Student enrollment has slipped to 756 regular students.
