Are these district office people included in the "Administration" group willing to talk about pay freezes? or does that group just represent building administrators?

Frank says it is chump change and we'll cut more teachers if we have to. These people have to be trusted!! Julia just nodded a "yes, I agree".

To 12:12PM ~~ Yup, Oberg voted in favor of each of these increases as far as I'm aware. No wonder he thinks going from $210K to $250K in salary for a supt. is no big deal ;)

Can you post what the increase is for Kim O'Connor, Assistant Director of Human resources. She was just a clerk a few years ago.

SCATS said...

To 12:51PM ~~ According to seethroughny.net, she made $80,436 in 2009 and $84,244 in 2010. That's all the info I have available.

Maybe some of the teachers cut from the budget can find a new home in the office staff. Might be an increase for them!

Yup and thier worth every penny. Its the price we pay to known as "World Class", even if the kids are achieving at an ALL time low academically.

these big increases were after the 08 crash... non-profits, including the UR, froze pay and top people took cuts... unbelievable...

So much for the thoery of merit pay. Look who would be mnaking the decisions. The least and the lightest

You people are forgetting, this is the public education monoply where 'merit' does not exist - money is no object - and where taxpayers get little to no respect.

How many Assistant Administrators (at $145,000 each) does it take? One of them for 4 teachers and my kids will have smaller classe sizes. What DO these folks do? Certainly not teach a room of 30 kids.

9:36, your right about that. Now tack on the district diesel fuel costs which could be cut back.

I was told top administrators offered a pay freeze followed by 1% increases for several years. Also building administrators are willing to sit down and talk about freezes.
I don't know where these people fit into that but we need more openness and information transfer to the general public (i.e. ME and others like me). These increases look bad and cause mistrust...
Still do not know what the "savings" from freezes would be used for...

I think someone should check to determine Ms. O'Connor's Civil Service status. You may find that she has never taken a civil service test for her current position and that the highest title she holds is that of a Senior Account Clerk. This may become more important if they are considering her as the replacement for Don Nadolinski when he retires.

Even if you're correct, the Civil Service job description that she's been hired under likely ends in "And additional duties as required."

That is how Greece Central School evades many such "problems". They split Civil Service titles and Internal Titles.

People, people, people......The light we are looking for is shining......brightly off of the coins these overpaid folks make. I, for one, cannot believe these people make more than the average teacher. Herein lies the problem with Greece - and it has been this way since the Walts regime. Interesting how many administrators there are still left from that era. I am not a teacher, but have kids in Greece. I fear retributuon for posting my name (i.e. - The Walts regime), but the problem is NOT the teachers. Most of these folks deserve what they make. It IS the overpaid fluff at the District Office. Do any of these people actually influence kids in Greece schools? I think not. Talk about overpaid! Clean out the District Office....and assistant principals while you are at it. And fourth grade band has to go?! Are you kidding me?! "Green Disease" is right there in front of your faces. What are you going to do about it? This is a joke.

Hello, Oberg?! Did you crunch your numbers about these people?! Are you listening? These salaries vs. Fourth Grade Band?! Shameful. I am moving out of Greece.
