Poway Unified School District Superintendent John Collins may be trying to negotiate an exit deal, but he’s also jockeying for a 4 percent raise for himself, his three associate superintendents and district managers before he goes.
Collins was listed on Sunday’s special board meeting agenda as the district’s “agent negotiator” with managers and associate superintendents.
District staff last month unsuccessfully sought board approval for a 4 percent raise for district managers, retroactive to July 1. Collins also sought one-year contract extensions for his three associate superintendents from June 2016 to June 2017 on Dec. 15, but all four items were pulled from December’s agenda for later consideration.
Collins declined to answer questions about his participation in raise talks.
