UPDATED: with Rye City, NY salary info
Superintendent of Montclair schools, Frank Alvarez, announced he would be leaving the district back in early February, but it wasn’t until last week did we learn that it was because he would be taking the Superintendent position at the Rye, NY school district.
Speculation is it’s because of Governor Christie’s Superintendent salary cap, which was put into place last year, that would have cut Alvarez’s $250,000 salary to $175,000 in two years. According to this New York State School Administrator Salary Disclosure document. The salary for Super. in the 2011-2012 school year was $253,623.
We asked Alvarez to speak to us about his time and work in Montclair and why he decided to leave. He responded, “I’ll pass at this time and let the record stand.”
