Brunswick County’s school board members make the most out of all three counties, if you count Brunswick’s local travel supplements, which are given to school board members for driving within the county.
The Brunswick school board chairman makes $825 a month and a $500 travel supplement, for a total of $1,325. The other school board members make $725, plus a $425 supplement, for a total of $1,150, schools finance officer Freyja Cahill said.
New Hanover and Pender school board members don’t get local travel supplements.
In New Hanover, the school board chairman makes $995 a month, according to Jeri Atchue from the county schools’ public relations department. The other school board members get a monthly $828.
The Pender County school board chairman makes $700, while the other school board members make $650, said Joyce Keith, that district’s spokeswoman.
