Indiana Lawmakers Look To Expand State’s School Buyout Cap

(INDIANAPOLIS) – Principals and assistant principals could soon be held to the same rules as local school superintendents in Indiana.

Lawmakers in Indianapolis say they are looking to expand the state’s law that caps school buyouts at $250,000.
The law specifically applies to school superintendents. State Senator Erin Houchin wants to expand that to cover principals, assistant principals, and assistant superintendents as well.
She says she’s gotten calls from local schools about who is covered by the cap, and how much other school administrators can be paid to leave.
