How County Boards Should Raise Their Salaries


ON-2019-09-13 County Board Salaries

Is your county school board considering a member compensation raise?

Boards can only act to raise their compensation at the Annual Meeting which must be held each November. No superintendent recommendation is needed.

Board members can receive compensation of up to $600 a month unless a higher figure is set by a local act. Ala. Code §16-1-26. This figure does not include expenses such as traveling and transacting board business. The raise would only go into effect when the next board member begins a new term in office.
