School Board Restores Compensation

School Board Restores Compensation

The Mitchell School Board last night voted to restore their compensation to their levels prior to budget cuts made three years ago.  The board had cut its per diem event cap to 24 paid events at 50 dollars per event.  The restoration increases the cap to 40 paid events at 60 dollars per event, capped at 2,400 dollars maximum.  Mitchell Schools Superintendent Joe Graves says even with the restoration, Mitchell’s school board members make less than other boards in the state.  Graves also noted that the school board members will be making what they made 14 years ago when Graves arrived in Mitchell.
