TransparentNevada now has benefits info for CCSD, Henderson, Reno and WCSD

Victor Joecks

TransparentNevada released 2011 salary and benefits data for over 120,000 government employees last week. There’s a lot of interesting data there, some of it detailed in our press release, but what was more interesting was the information that was missing.

Clark County School District, Henderson, Reno, Washoe County School District and the State of Nevada did not include benefits information in response to TransparentNevada’s records request.

I’m happy to report that after our press release pointing this out and subsequent media coverage, TransparentNevada received benefits information from Clark County School District, Henderson, Reno and Washoe County School District and that information is now on TransparentNevada.

There’s a lot of information to dig through from just those four jurisdictions, but here is an interesting fact from each one to get you started.

Clark County School District: 2,259 employees made over $100,000 in 2011. Yes, you read that right.

Henderson: Henderson’s Director of Cultural Arts and Tourism made $199,107.66 in 2011, including a base salary of $153,029.11, which is higher than the $143,426.25 in base pay made by Gov. Brian Sandoval. Her base pay has also increased by over $18,000 since 2008.

Reno: Reno’s Director of Parks/Recreation/Community Services has a higher base salary, $148,991.80, than Gov. Brian Sandoval, $143,426.25. It total the Director of Park and Rec made over $208,000 last year.

Washoe County School District: 394 employees made over $100,000 in 2011.
