Some bonus targets tied to increasing proficiency scores district-wide

By John Mooney

Almost one year into the job, Newark superintendent Cami Anderson and the Christie administration have inked a contract that will pay her $247,500 for this and each of the next two years, plus bonuses of up to nearly $50,000 if she meets a mix of performance targets.

The total amount places her among the highest-paid school administrators in the state, albeit slightly below what her predecessor, Clifford Janey, received to lead the state-run district.

A significant portion of Anderson’s contract, obtained by NJ Spotlight yesterday under an Open Public Records Act request, is tied to merit bonuses contingent on specific student achievement measures and broader judgments about her progress.
