The Wake County school board has reached a deal with Donna Hargens over how much additional money she'll get to serve as interim superintendent.
Under a deal signed June 1, Hargens received an extra $3,000 per month for March, April, May and June. She'll begin getting an extra $5,000 per month starting in July.
The post June increase in Hargens' monthly pay coincides with the official departure of Del Burns as superintendent. He's been on paid administrative leave since March.
As additional perks, Hargens can exchange up to 10 annual leave days for additional salary. She also gets a $750 increase in her travel allowance.
This additional pay comes on top of the $148,965 salary Hargens receives as the district's chief academic officer. She's officially serving both jobs until a permanent superintendent is named.
