40 make Revelstoke School District “sunshine list”

Forty employees of the Revelstoke School District made the so-called "sunshine list" in the 2012-13 school year

Forty employees of the Revelstoke School District made the so-called “sunshine list” in the 2012-13 school year, according to figures released to the Times Review.

The list is of public sector employees earning more than $75,000, which governments are required to make public by law. The report was released by Bruce Tisdale, the school district’s secretary treasurer.

Of the 40 people on the list, 30 are teachers — the highest paid of which made $85,027. About 70 teachers were employed by the school district that year, Tisdale said.

Teachers’ salaries are based on a combination of experience and education

The district’s highest paid employee that year was now-retired superintendent Anne Cooper, who earned $139,391. She also claimed $21,420 in expenses. Her replacement Mike Hooker earned $119,917 and claimed $11,413 in expenses.

Former secretary-treasurer Barbara Ross made $107,093 and claimed $10,016 in expenses.

The district’s elementary school principals and district principal Earl Woodhurst earned about $97,000 each.

The rest of the list includes the vice-principal of Revelstoke Secondary School, the district speech language pathologist, the school district psychologist, and the district elementary counsellor.

In total, $3,385,623 in salaries were paid to the 40 people on the list.

School trustees were paid $8,022 each and board chair Alan Chell was paid $9,007. Jeff Nicholson claimed the most expenses at $2,883. Mauro Morrone claimed $2,686 in expenses, Chell claimed $2,171, Elmer Rorstad claimed $1,518 and Bryan Dubasov claimed $1,152.

The numbers are for the 2012-13 school year — the latest for which information is available. There has been significant turnover in school district administration over the past few years, meaning the 2013-14 numbers are likely significantly different.
