I know of one situation that blows my mind - a HD in charge of the entire district’s band program. Makes more than anybody else. Teaches HS band, “assists” with one more class. The rest of the day is office time. Doesn’t go to the other 2 campuses. That’s with an assistant that handles all things budget and money related.
That’s not a “well a lot of people don’t understand everything that the HD has to do…” kind of thing. It’s a director who’s close to retirement taking advantage of their team.
