Members of the school administrators' union in Philadelphia have ratified a labor agreement with the district that calls for severe wage cuts.

Under the terms of the new contract, the average assistant principal or principal will take a pay cut of 12 percent to 17 percent. Principals now make between $124,000 and $149,000, and that will change to $97,000 to $124,000. Assistant principals are now paid between $106,000 and $133,000, and that will be reduced to between $88,000 and $110,000. Principals and other administrators will shift from year-round to 10-month contracts.

Facing an unprecedented fiscal crisis, district officials have budgeted $130 million in savings over five years from the unions.
