Rome School Board Votes In Favor Of Wage Increase For Superintendent

Luke Tubia, WIBX

The Rome City School District voted 5-4 Wednesday night in favor of giving Superintendent Jeff Simons a 2% raise despite strong opposition from dozens of teachers and taxpayers.

The resolution also includes a provision where the district will reimburse Simons for a portion of tuition he pays while earning his PhD.

Board member Louis Daniello called for the resignation of the board members who voted for the wage increase because he says the rest of the board is supposed to listen to their constituents, and they clearly didn’t.

The majority of public comments called for the board to table the vote on the wage increase, but that resolution was also defeated 5-4.

Simons would not comment to WIBX on the issue.
