Trenton pays out $1.7M to school administrators for unused vacation days

A month after Trenton Public Schools outlined its doomsday budget earlier this year, the top brass of the district received fat bonuses.

According to documents obtained by The Trentonian, 55 administrators received a combined $1.7 million in unused vacation time in February and May, and kept working for the district.

That type of payout is generally only made to retiring employees, but this time around, a one-time payment was agreed upon between the Board of Education, the state Department of Education fiscal monitor, and the Trenton Administrators & Supervisors Association (TASA) in the union contract.
