The Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District board has unanimously approved a 3.25% cost-of-living increase for four top administrators.
Deputy Supt. Howard Rainey and assistant superintendents Emma Hulett, Betty Coogan and Marie Plakos were all given raises.
Before the increase, Rainey's monthly salary was $6,401 and Hulett, Coogan and Plakos received $6,040 per month. The increase will be added to their monthly salaries.
All are in the last year of three-year contracts, which will be up for renewal by May 1.
In other action, a drug education and gang consultant was hired. Oscar Diaz will counsel students, parents and school staff members about drug and gang problems. Diaz's contract runs from October through June 28 at an annual salary of $40,000.
