Here is some more of her report:
State Sen. Jim Banks, R-Columbia City, requested the evaluation after 6News' coverage of former Wayne Township Superintendent Terry Thompson's $1 million retirement package.
"I'm alarmed to watch your stories about superintendents making a $1 million severance package when they leave a school system," Banks said. "It's startling as a taxpayer."
Banks said he believes administrator salaries have become bloated, all while teachers are being laid off and programs are cut.
"The superintendent receives a nice package in one district, and the district next door demands to be paid as well as the other superintendents," Banks said. "I think it's caused inflation of salaries around the state, and that's why I think we need to look into the issue."and base salaries without perks and benefits of some superintendents:
Indianapolis Public Schools Superintendent Eugene White makes the most statewide, earning $272,940 for a district of more than 33,000 students.
The superintendent of Greater Clark County Schools ranks second, making $225,500 in a district with just over 10,000 students.The WRTV website provides a link to a list of superintendent salaries across the state.
Donald Stinson of Decatur Township Schools ranked eighth, with a base salary of $189,287 for a district with about 6,400 students.
