Speaking of Superintendent Salary Caps:

Superintendent Mark Raivetz took a salary freeze this year and earns $177,629 -- more than $20,000 above the planned cap. Raivetz has indicated he'll leave the district when his contract is up in 2012 rather than deal with the cap."I really like it here. But why would I take a salary cut?" said Raivetz, who was recently named New Jersey's Superintendent of the Year. "If it was the fault of all the superintendents that the state is in such bad shape, I would fall on my sword. But to the outside, we are very easy targets because there is just one of us in every district."
