WOODBURY - Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) is proposing a salary cap that would limit the money made by school superintendents.
Superintendents in smaller districts would be capped at $125,000 a year, while the leaders of bigger districts could make up to $175,000.
The plan would affect administrators such as Dr. Carole Hankin, who runs the Syosset School District. Hankin, the highest-paid superintendent on Long Island, makes more than $375,000 a year.
Currently, 31 percent of superintendents make more than $179,000. Cuomo's proposal, should it be passed by the Legislature, could force lower salaries for 319 superintendents, nearly half of the top district administrators in the state.
