Thursday's meeting also hosted a contentions debate on salaries of county school employees.
At last month's meeting, Jordon requested a discussion of principals' salaries this month. That agenda item brought more than a dozen teachers union members to the meeting.
Jordon's concern - that Kanawha County doesn't pay its principals enough to attract and retain high quality candidates - was unpopular among the crowd of teachers, who maintain that the same problem exists among all school employees in the county.
With an average principal salary of $80, 673, Kanawha County ranks 25th among the state's 55 school systems.
Kanawha's principal salaries range from $77,600 to $91,200.
Fred Albert, president of the Kanawha County branch of the American Federation of Teachers, pointed out the average teacher's salary in Kanawha County - $33, 405 - is the tenth best in the state.
And Dinah Adkins, president of the Kanawha County branch of the West Virginia Education Association, said that the board should consider teacher pay before administrators.
"And if I had been awarded a raise I would refuse to accept it until those inequalities were corrected," she said, referring to the board's decision last month to raise Superintendent Ron Duerring's salary by 5 percent.
That decision raised Deurring's salary by $7,500, to $157,500.
