Lindbergh Superintendent Dr. Jim Simpson receives a salary of $204,900 to $215,000, plus benefits, according to his current contract. Simpson also receives $650 a month to pay for his transportation and cellphone expenses.

A district spokeswoman e-mailed me this response today: "Last year, Dr. Jim Simpson made $204,750. His annual contract includes a 5 percent raise, but Dr. Simpson wrote a check back to the district this summer in the amount of his entire pay increase. Dr. Simpson did this in response to $4.7 million in cuts approved by our board last spring. He did not feel it was appropriate to take a pay increase when we are reducing positions and programs."
