Salary squabble may cost district its state aid

PARSIPPANY - State officials have told the Parsippany-Troy Hills school district that they will withhold its $3.6 million in state aid unless district officials cut the superintendent's salary by $43,000 to fit under a state-mandated salary cap.

The directive was reportedly issued yesterday after it became widely known that Lee Seitz was getting a $220,565 salary under a contract that the school board had rescinded this summer, a Daily Record report said.

Morris County Superintendent Kathleen Serafino said the additional money set aside for his compensation must be used for instruction related to the core curriculum.
