San Antonio is home to school districts as large as 106,000 students, and as little as 4,000, but no matter how many students a district serves, the superintendents are being paid handsomely.

Superintendent Brian Woods of Northside ISD rolled in the largest base pay last school year with over $300,000 for guiding the largest district in San Antonio, and fourth largest in the state.

In Alamo Heights ISD, which student population is only 4 percent that of Northside, Superintendent Kevin Brown takes home about $250,000, more than any superintendent in Bexar County except those leading the three largest school districts.

The lowest-paid superintendent on the list is Saul Uriel Hinojosa, of Somerset ISD, who makes about half of what Woods is paid and has about the same number of students as are in Alamo Heights ISD.

One of the newest names to the highest-earners list is Edgewood ISD's Emilio Castro, who was named to the post by a state-appointed board in November with a base salary of $205,000.

Statewide, Superintendent John Mark Henry of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD in Harris County had the largest base pay for a traditional public school district, bringing in $393,103 for a district of 114,868 students.

Henry is closely followed by Susan Simpson of Dallas County's Grand Prairie ISD, who rakes in a whopping $375,795 for a district of only 29,344 students.

The Texas Education Agency data reflects the base pay as of October of 2016 for the 2016-2017 school year.
