Fight Continues Over NJ Superintendent Pay

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A New Jersey school board is continuing to pay a school chief singled out by Gov. Chris Christie well above a pending superintendent pay cap.

Meanwhile, the Parsippany school board for a second time has been ordered to rescind Superintendent Lee Seitz's contract extension.

The board approved a five-year contract extension for Seitz on Nov. 9 to boost his pay to more $216,000, and the Daily Record of Parsippany reports that the district has been paying him the increased salary.

Under a new pay scale to take effect Feb. 7, superintendents would earn $125,000 to $175,000, depending on enrollment.
