Superintendent raises soared above those of teachers in last decade | Education | Cass County Democrat Missourian



Earlier this year, Lee’s Summit Superintendent David McGehee resigned from his position as the highest paid superintendent in Missouri. His total compensation was nearly $400,000. When McGehee was hired by the district, before the 2006–2007 school year, his salary was $170,000. He also received a $15,000 deferral into a tax-sheltered annuity in 2017, $6,000 to defray costs for a vehicle, $5,000 to defray the cost of moving and, according to his contract, the board “encourages him to take twenty-five days in annual vacation time, excluding holidays.” From 2006 to 2015, the superintendent salary in the district increased by 46.3 percent, adjusting for inflation. In that same period, Lee’s Summit teachers saw raises totaling 1.2 percent, adjusting for inflation, according to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
