San Dieguito fails to release district salaries by deadline.
San Dieguito was one of only three districts out of the county's 42 districts to fail to release salary data to Transparent California.
The district has come under increased scrutiny over the last couple of years for a majority of the board's approval of a 12.5% retroactive salary increase (touted as the highest salary increase ever in the county) to all district staff despite projected operational deficits and ongoing parent requests for more funding at school sites.
The district's master contract for its teaching staff currently requires that the staff be the highest paid in the county and includes an open "top salary guarantee" in the contract, an approach which earned the district the San Diego Taxpayer's Grand Gold Fleece Award in 2016. San Diego Tribune
