Police Reports: July 1, 2015

Homewood-Flossmoor District 233 school board members knew they had a solid leader in Laura Murray. They offered her an acting superintendent’s contract in 1993, and awarded her a superintendent’s contract in 1994, 1997, 2001 and again in 2006 because they wanted her to stay on.

The contract language included two 20 percent raises in her final years with the district. Those salary bumps have been controversial since 2008 when the Teachers Retirement System (TRS) notified the district it would need to pay an additional $225,884 to cover Murray’s pension.
