The Baltimore County school board gave Superintendent Dallas Dance a $5,000 a year pay increase this week, part of several changes to his four-year employment contract.
The increase raises his annual salary to $265,000.
School officials said the percentage increase was equivalent to the 1.9 percent average increase teachers will get, in addition to a 3 percent bonus.
The contract also will be amended so that Dance will not be allowed to take any outside consulting jobs. The board's ethics panel found him in violation of its rules in taking a part-time job with a professional development company last year.
The board will not publicly disclose other changes made to the contract until it has been signed.
