Arlene Ackerman received a $65,000 bonus last year

From The Philadelphia Inquirer: Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner has blasted the Philadelphia School District for including lucrative bonus terms in Superintendent Arlene C. Ackerman's contract. Wagner says his office opposes bonuses for public employees, especially highly paid ones. Ackerman, whose salary is $348,000, received a $65,000 bonus last year. She announced recently that she would defer a $100,000 bonus due her later this year until the district's budget became clearer.
