School Administrative Overhead Bill Advances

Rep. Corey Holland:
Wants accurate
accounting of
administrative overhead
Legislation to provide greater transparency in the reporting of school administrative costs gained subcommittee approval today.

House Bill 1372, by Rep. Corey Holland, would require that the salaries of staff serving a superintendent, elementary superintendent or any assistant superintendent be calculated as administrative overhead.

Under current law, only the superintendent’s staff salaries are included as an administrative expense.

“This is just a simple way to ensure the public knows the true amount of tax funding going to administrative overhead at a local school,” said Holland, a Marlow Republican who is a former teacher. “It’s just common sense that all administrative support staff salaries should be included in the reporting of administrative expenses.”
