How Much With NO Experience??



The Minutes from the Feb. 26, 2013 BOE meeting show that Lynne Armstrong has moved from the position of GCSD Board Clerk to the Supt's Administrative Assistant with NO change in salary ($70,162 in 2012) on 2/27/13.

The Minutes from the Feb. 26, 2013 BOE meeting show that Julia Van Orman's PTA pal Ann Barrows assumes the BOE clerk position "At will" (but permanently on 3/11/13) for a starting salary of $50,000, with NO prior experience in this area.

The Minutes from the Feb. 26, 2013 BOE meeting show that Kevin Boivin moved from the position of Network Administrator making a salary of $70,576 to become the new Director of Information Technology on 2/27/13* making a salary of $90,000. That's a mere $20K bump in salary!!

SCATS ~~ The above info proves once again that it's not what you know, but who you know in GCSD ;) Ain't graft a wonderful thing??

* The minutes pre-date the change!

I don't know about the admin jobs, but if the new Director of IT truly has job responsibilities that typically go with a title like that then $90K is a cheap salary - perhaps reflecting the long summer off. The BOE can use a good job description and salary.com to reality check the numbers.

To 3:58AM ~~ I'm thinking that just MAYBE there should be a 3 mo. probationary period of time to see if he's up to the task BEFORE handing over an extra $20K ... but I'm well aware that common sense is absent on this BOE.

When will the BOE ask the super about all the new hires above and beyond voter approved 2012-13 staffing!? Toyia Wilson the turn around principal? A new IT person hired today that noone even new about as the position was not posted?!!!
When will the BOE ask the super why the last four hires ar from the City School District? No qualified people in Greece or are Sean Nelms and Jamie Warren bringing their friends to Greece? Is Greece the new City School District?
When will the BOE ask the super why we are selling property under value? Does noone remember Britton Road? Greece will get a one time couple million, for what? To give these properties away is discusting!!

Considering the new IT Director has been doing the job for the past 7 months and has over 30 years experience in K-12 education, he deserves the title and the raise.

To 9:49PM ~~ 30 yrs. experience in education has NO correlation to deserving a raise to be an IT Director!! For that position, he has 7 months experience, period.

If it were reversed, I'm sure teachers would be telling us that experience in IT does NOT prepare someone to become a teacher. Nice try though ;)

you want to talk about no experience, the board clerk couldn't even repeat the swearing in oath last night. If she can't follow that how is she going to follow the blah blah blah of the rediculous board members?
