Sidney School Board approves salary increases


Sidney Public School (SPS) Board approved salaries for the 2017-18 school year in Monday’s meeting.

The board approved Classified and Administrator salaries at a 2.89 percent package increase. Superintendent Jay Ehler said the package takes the whole of Classified or Administrator salaries with the budget in consideration and adds a 2.89 percent increase to divide evenly to those salaries.

Classified positions in the school system are non-teaching degree positions, such as para professionals, kitchen staff, custodial and secretarial.

The superintendent’s salary was also on the agenda for Monday. As part of the Superintendent/ESU Administrator Transparency Act, all public school district superintendents and Educational Service Unit administrators are required to file any approved contract and any amendments to the Nebraska Department of Education by August 1 of each school year.

According to Ehler, the contracts must also be available to the public for three days prior to the board’s approval. The board approved Ehler’s Superintendent contract for the 2017-18 school year. Ehler’s contract is available on the SPS website at or the Nebraska Department of Education website at

The next regular SPS Board meeting will be held April 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the District Administrative building in Sidney.
