Lancaster's four elementary school principals will be paid $62,000 this school year under a new contract between the Board of Education and the Lancaster Administrative and Supervisory Association.

The high school principal's pay rises to $65,000 and the middle school principal's to $64,000. Assistant principals at both schools will receive $59,000.

All nine principals and assistants will receive $4,000 raises in the second and third years of the agreement.

The food service director's salary increases to $27,580 this school year, $30,330 in 1991-92, and $33,080 in the third year of the agreement, with annual raises averaging 10 percent.

The transportation supervisor's pay goes to $50,900 this year, $54,150 in 1991-92, and $57,400 in 1992-93.

The buildings and grounds superintendent will be paid $45,774 this year, and receive $3,000 raises in each of the last two years of the agreement.

The food service director's position was singled out for a pay upgrade. Her secretary was making more than she was, one administrator said.

Other raises are about 7 percent his year, 6.5 percent for '91-92, and 6 percent for '92-93, although the assistant principals' percentage 60,000
increases are slightly more. The agreement, approved by the School Board Monday, is retroactive to July 1. A tentative settlement reached in August with the participation of a state-appointed mediator was rejected by the administrators.

Negotiators for administrators and school boards in several districts have had trouble reaching agreements this year, as administrators press for the same high-percentage increases won by teachers in the past two or three years.

The Cheektowaga Central and Depew school boards are still without agreements with administrators' bargaining units, and Depew lacks a contract with its Civil Service Employees Association unit.
