HCPSS MPIA Request #2023-043

Requested Information
We are currently doing a study on the head superintendents of schools (i.e. the person in charge of the school district whether that be CEOs, Chancellors, etc.), and I am requesting data on superintendents between the years 2000-2022. I am specifically looking for their names, their salaries and the years that they were working. If there are interim superintendents during that period, I would like to know that information on them as well.

So essentially what I am asking for is:

2000-superintendent name-superintendent salary
2001-superintendent name-superintendent salary
2002-superintendent name-superintendent salary
2022-superintendent name-superintendent salary

Thank you so much for any help you can provide in this matter.
