One of the Brick school district’s most highly-paid employees was quietly awarded a raise at the Board of Education’s June 1 meeting, making him the highest-paid individual in the district.

James Edwards, the longtime business administrator, will see his pay increase from $176,74 to $178,508. He will receive an additional $4,000 if he chooses not to utilize the district’s health insurance plan.

The move will officially make Edwards the district’s highest-paid employee, with a salary higher than the state maximum even a superintendent can receive. Interim Superintendent Thomas Gialanella is paid $682.69 per day, the equivalent of a $177,500 salary.

Edwards is tenured in the business administrator position. The raise was quietly approved at the June 1 meeting. Breaking with tradition, a new contract was not specifically placed on the meeting agenda, rather, Edwards’ name was included in a list of non-union employees whose salaries were being set for the upcoming 2017-18 school year.
