Many people in the Hanover school community are upset with the direction Superintendent Carol Kaiser is taking the schools. For the money Kaiser is paid, the students deserve much better.
The board has done a disservice to the taxpayers by negotiating a ridiculously high contract with Kaiser that pays her a salary of $101,505 a year with an amendment that gives her an additional stipend of $12,000, an annual contribution to her retirement annuity of $3,000, yearly stipends totaling $2,000 for licenses, and $6,500 for automobile transportation expenses. Kaiser gets an additional $7,800 from another cooperative. All together, Kaiser is raking in $132,805. This is $37, 805.00 more than the governor makes.
And get this, the board credited her with 215 accumulated sick leave days from her previous employment. It's no wonder student programs and staff have been cut and custodian hours have been reduced.
