Raises for Budget Strapped Toms River School Board Administrators on Hold for Now


TOMS RIVER-With 58 teaching jobs being cut, along with 12 secretary positions and 6 facilities positions being slashed by the Toms River School District, the school board decided to table a resolution that was on the agenda to give raises to four top-level administrators after residents balked at the idea.

In total, the four administrators would have received $21,000 in additional money on top of their already six-figure salaries.

Business Administrator William Doering ($201,000) and Assistant Superintendents Debra McKenna ($192,132), Marc Natanagara ($177,921) and James Ricotta ($165,609).

The raises were first announced by the board of education in the May 5th personnel agenda that included the annual contracts for the administrators.

The new contracts for the administrators also included additional perks.

In her contract, McKenna was also to receive a $15,000 tax-deferred annuity, which she receives each year, plus a pick of the “vehicle of her choice”, according to the agreement.  The contract also called for 25 vacation days, 15 sick days, 5 bereavement days and 5 personal days annually.
