Stamford Public Schools (SPS) Superintendent Dr. Tamu Lucero announced in recognition of the impact of the more than $65 million projected financial decrease in revenue that COVID-19 pandemic will have on the City of Stamford, the superintendent and members of her cabinet will voluntarily forego pay increases for the next two years (FY 2020-2021 and 2021-2022). It should be noted that SPS cabinet positions are based on annually issued one-year term sheets. The superintendent’s cabinet comprises senior leaders of the Human Resources, Finance and Public Affairs departments, as well as the Associate Superintendents.
“My team and I recognize that our school community has been gravely impacted by the coronavirus epidemic, and we all must share in reducing the final impact it has on the Stamford community long term,” said Superintendent Lucero. “If we all are willing to assume a portion of the burden, we may be able to retain some programs and services in our schools and in our city.”
