  • In the last long session of the General Assembly, principals and assistant principals received pay bumps and a new salary schedule
  • The new schedule, while an improvement according to Prince, had some flaws, including the fact that some principals might eventually get paid less under the new pay schedule than they did on the old one
  • The General Assembly is likely to address some of the problems with the schedule this short session, including extending a hold harmless to ensure that principals don’t make less money under the new pay schedule

On the latest episode of EdTalk, host Alex Granados talks with Shirley Prince, the executive director of the North Carolina Principals and Assistant Principal’s Association. The General Assembly short session is underway, and Prince previews some of what may happen for principals this session. This interview was recorded last week.
