The longest-serving superintendent in Gwinnett County Public Schools' history, J. Alvin Wilbanks, has signed a contract worth more than $800k to remain in his position for 2 more years.

Quote:
Gwinnett County Public Schools’ CEO and Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks’ new term was made official by unanimous approval of the Gwinnett County Board of Education on Thursday night. Wilbanks, whose current contract expires on June 30, 2020, is now contracted to be superintendent until June 30, 2022...

… Wilbanks’ base pay will be $380,971.88, effective Jan. 1, 2020. He will receive a transportation allowance of $1,500 per month, an expense allowance of $1,200 per month, a retirement supplement of $3,500 per month and a longevity supplement of $6,250 per month. An annual contribution also will be made on his behalf to the Georgia Teachers Retirement System with the payment for year one being $31,822.31. All other provisions are identical to his previous contract.
"J. Alvin Wilbanks signs two-year contract to remain Gwinnett County Public Schools superintendent" (Gwinnett Daily Post)

Wilbanks has served as GCPS superintendent since 1996.

Many Gwinnett County residents generally look favorably upon him for the solid leadership that he seems to have provided to a GCPS system that has experienced massive, stunning demographic changes during his 23-year tenure as superintendent.

Though, there are also appear to be many Gwinnett residents who seem to object to the roughly more than $400,000 total salary that he earns each year as a public servant, especially compared to the modest pay of most teachers.

With a total enrollment of 180,589 students as of October 1st, 2019, GCPS is the largest and most (racially/ethnically and socioeconomically) diverse school system in the state of Georgia and is estimated to be at least the 13th-largest school system in the entire U.S.

GCPS Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks honored with a resolution on the floor of the GA House of Representatives

This past Wednesday, longtime Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks was honored with a resolution by the Georgia state House of Representatives.

Quote:
Rep. Gregg Kennard, D-Lawrenceville, introduced Gwinnett County Public Schools Superintendent and CEO J. Alvin Wilbanks on the floor of the Coverdell Legislative Building on Wednesday as part of a resolution to honor the longtime Gwinnett County Public Schools superintendent.

"WHEREAS," the resolution reads, "in recognition of such remarkable contributions to the education and welfare of Georgia's students, it is abundantly fitting and proper for this body to honor the extraordinary accomplishments and achievements of this outstanding gentleman."

Wilbanks has been superintendent for the Gwinnett County Public Schools system since 1996 and has, along with a remarkably stable Gwinnett County Board of Education, been thought to have provided much leadership and stability to a GCPS system that has been in constant flux during his 24-year tenure.

He is responsible for 143 schools, so the amount he is paid seems fair. 180K students is a lot.

Administrators responsible for a district with 5-8 schools on Long Island NY are paid the same.

GCPS is quite impressive considering the large size, the amount of change over the last few decades, and the spread/diversity in schools and student population.
