How about the contract and rehired people that are working for 400 dollars per day?. That is higher than Babs.

To 5:04PM ~~ Very true. Sadly, few people are aware of them. I thought it was interesting that Ch 10's report on highly paid school administrators showed that Bab's was second least expensive on a per pupil basis ($17.xx/hr) than most in Monroe County. Also noteworthy was that Deb Leh was least expensive overall, until the per pupil math was considered ... and that Ken Graham was most expensive, again without the per pupil factor. Both of them are former GCSD employees.

The finance guy that was supposedly interim yet still seems to be there for over a year now makes almost double that per day figure from what I have heard. Why is this allowed? It can't be cheaper than hiring a new full time salaried person can it? Any word on whether he will be on the payroll again next year? Not exactly what I would consider an interim.

It's possible that he is not a district employee in the true sense . Meaning he may well be a contract employee. As such, he would not receive a benefit package.If this be the case, the answer to your question is yes. It is cheaper.
In addition, the district would have no deduction obligation for FICA or, with holding tax. They would only be obligated to report his gross income and furnish him with a. 1099 instead of a W2 for tax purposes.
The district routinely hires contract employees with proper certification credentials for the position the hold.

Were any educational goals met to attain these salaries?

SCATS said...

Charlie ~~ "Goal" is a 4-letter word and "educational" is too big for them to sound out when reading. Sorry :(

SCATS said...

To 11:11AM ~~ Just because someone doesn't get a benefit package doesn't necessarily mean we are getting a "deal." If that person made $200/day as an employee but we offer $400/day as a contractor AFTER THEY TOOK RETIREMENT, I'd say we are getting reamed! Part of the problem with this is the fact that we don't know how many such employees we have working here.

Scats. Your assuming again. Contracted employees are usually not in public pension fund therefore no pension contribution by the district .
Nine chances out of ten says this guy has his own DBA, INCORPORATED OR AN LLC therefore he is not a public employee and as far as retirement goes, he is on his own as private contractor for hire in either the private or public sector.
Some athletic coaching position are in this category and Driver education instructors who are paid per diem or hourly and no benefits.

SCATS said...

To 4:37PM ~~ I'm thinking more of the Don Nadolinski & John O'Rourke types who TOOK RETIREMENTS from school districts AND THEN became contractors. Both of them were just "let go" by Greece after years!

The only benefit he doesn't get is health insurance . I would gladly be willing to make over 700 a day along with full time vacation benefits. You can't tell me that is cheaper and more effective by contracting a retired administrator and paying an outrageous daily pay along with vacation and sick pay than hiring someone full time to fill the vacancy. I am not buying that .

SCATS said...

To 8:53PM ~~ That's exactly what I'm saying, too.

It is so much easier to hide the "contract" retirees as they double dip into the system. They don't show up on "see through ny" . Just like Mr Loszynski doesn't show up at the police station. He has been running things for the whole time Todd was here. Retired and working here and in charge. As well as working for other cities . Wonder if he is still in charge of baby chief. Those meddlin' public safety directors!

He makes 850 a day and gets sick days and vacation pay. He's not very well like by his department members. They would like someone there every day and someone they can talk to when necessary. But he's Bab's buddyt and does whatever she wants.

Anonymous said...

9:11 is correct about everything. Everyone is sick of his preferential treatment and pay because he is her buddy. He is retired and yet scan swing working three days a week making that amount with full time vacation and sick days. It is disgusting. He does nothing for that salary. People in his department don't like him because they do all his work and he gets close to 900 a day. How does the board let this go on and let BABS get away with this. Hire a new full time person to take over that department that can be there every day. Stop doing your friend a solid and do what's right for the district.

SCATS said...

To 7:29PM ~~ I'm not entirely sure yet that I know WHO it is you folks are referring to. Are the initials RC?

Anonymous said...

No wrong person SCATS. It is that persons "supervisor" even though the person you are thinking of is the poor guy that has to do all the work while his so called boss collects 850 a day for the three days he puts in a week, that is when he is not on vacation, which is of course paid also.

SCATS said...

To 10:58PM ~~ JG then? I never heard of him until recently. Where did he come from??

Anonymous said...

That would be correct. He retired from another district and is close friends with the super so why not hook your buddy up with a sweet gig. He has been there since Scott hoot left. That is a very long time for a interim position. Director of finance is not a position that you leave vacant or fill with a interim part time person. Not really sure how an interim is still in place goin on year 2 shortly.

If someone actually asked him a question at a board meeting I highly doubt he could answer it. He would have to refer to his underlings that he is screwing over since they are the ones doing all the work, he just gets the credit and the pay for it.

SCATS said...

To 10:57PM ~~ So then, he operates exactly the same way Babs does ~ He collects a check while the underlings make him look good. Must be nice!

I hear Babs is hanging here for another FOUR years, due to her private life coming unravelled. That's bad news for Nelms who she promised the Superintency too ... as if she would get to choose her successor anyway.
