CONCORD -- The Mt. Diablo school board on Wednesday approved about $1.1 million in administrator raises and bonuses, but in a 4-1 vote excluded four top managers covered by contracts.

Board President Barbara Oaks and Trustees Brian Lawrence and Cheryl Hansen agreed that the chief financial officer and assistant superintendents should negotiate raises when their contracts expire June 30. Trustee Linda Mayo voted against amending the motion to exclude the top managers, then voted for the amended motion.

Trustee Lynne Dennler voted against excluding the contract administrators. The deal provides an ongoing 3 percent raise along with a one-time 2 percent bonus retroactive to July 31.
