Murray Retires, Will Receive $228,000 from AASD

Retired Altoona Area School District superintendent Dr. Dennis Murray will receive an additional $228,000 in compensation – payable in installments over the next four years.
District officials say the money – as agreed upon in his contract – reimburses Murray for the unused sick and accrued vacation that he accumulated over his tenure as superintendent. Business manager Michelle Krebs says the money will be diverted into a 403-B retirement plan and a health savings account.
The financial disbursements still need to be approved by the school board at a future meeting. The move will happen as Murray and current school directors anxiously await the findings of a Pennsylvania Auditor General’s Office financial audit investigating alleged illegal pay raises given by Murray.
Murray’s supporters say the former superintendent worked tirelessly for the students while limiting tax increases and leaving the district with a healthy fund balance.
