Poll: Should superintendents take pay freezes?

Amid clamor over school chiefs' salaries, Jericho Superintendent Henry Grishman is taking a five-year pay freeze.

Grishman, 66, will continue collecting the equivalent of this year's $288,794 base pay through the 2015-16 school year, along with $134,000-plus in annual benefits and payouts for unused sick days.

In recent months, a host of critics, including Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, have targeted superintendents' pay -- notably, the record $405,244 paid Superintendent Carole Hankin in the neighboring Syosset-Woodbury district. Hankin has announced she'll take a freeze next year.
