State Supreme Court to hear appeal in school administrators case

The N.J. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a Christie administration appeal from last year’s decision that partially blocked the governor’s attempt to limit compensation for school district administrators.

Last August, the state Superior Court sided with the N.J. Association of School Administrators’ argument that 2008 budgeting procedures adopted under then-Education Commissioner Bret Schundler violated contracts that already were in place.

The court ruled, in general, that the administration’s attempt to cap superintendents’ compensation was permissible, but not for assistant superintendents’ compensation.

The state’s highest court will now hear the state’s appeal in the case.
