FOX2 'You Paid For It' Report Targets Parkway Schools Chief Over Salary

Fox 2 News questions a salary bump given to Dr. Keith Marty and compares the pay to Ladue's top administrator.

How much is too much in tough economic times?

That is the question FOX2's Elliott Davis asked in this week's "You Paid For It" report which asked the head of the Parkway School District Board to defend the $7,000 raise given to second year Superintendent Dr. Keith Marty.

Marty's salary is currently $227,000. Davis questioned School Board President Beth Feldman about the move, considering the economic challenges which have forced the district to make cuts elsewhere.

Davis contrasted that with action taken by the Ladue School district when it named Dr. Marsha Chappelow as its superintendent, at a lower rate than her predecessor.

Fair comparison? Tell us what you think!

I think it is ridiculous that he would earn that much when the front line people are losing their jobs. They are reducing amount of people in the lunch room while increasing the amount of kids at our elementary school.

It maybe time for Parkway to have their own citizens watchdog group. If any Parkway stakeholders are interested in how to form an organization, please contact Rockwood Stakeholders for Real Solutions @ rsdstakeholders@gmail.com. Also visit our website at rsdstakeholders.org

Shame on him for taking that increase! I live in the district and it makes me so angry when they lay off staff who are there to support our children and then give this man a raise. Parkway district residents need to take a stand!!!
