Payroll Project: Tecumseh’s highest-paid employees

Crew took over as interim superintendent in January of 2015 when Brad Martin was suspended following revelations that he’d skipped work repeatedly to gamble at casinos and had stolen money from various school-related accounts.

She served in that role until the district hired new Superintendent Norm Glismann on Aug. 1. He was paid $46,154 by the district in 2015.

Martin was paid $6,978 owed on his contract at the beginning of the year.

The district has about 3,000 students and paid more than 600 people last year, including substitutes and part-time employees. More than 160 employees made more than $50,000. Crew was the only one to make more than $100,000.

According to the data, the five highest-paid Tecumseh Local Schools employees last year were:

1. Assistant and Interim Superintendent Paula Crew: $115,162.

2. Treasurer Debra Schock: $99,296.

3. High School Principal Ivan Gehret: $92,859.

4. Curriculum Specialist Cecil Foley: $90,614.

5. Director of Special Education Susan Wile: $89,877.
