Administrative Salaries: Commentary


I would like to take this post to address the table of administrative salaries I posted earlier today.  Can someone please explain why Maryellen Monafo's salary increased $16,535 in 2009-10 and $10,420 in 2010-11?  If the papers are correct, the District didn't have enough money to pay their teachers, yet found the money to give Mrs. Monafo a 10 thousand dollar raise?  

Why did the District feel the need to increase the number of administrators in 2008-2009?  After ballooning the administration, the District then felt the need to give these new positions raises the following year.  I'm sure anyone would love a raise of $12,343 like Mr. Kerr or perhaps a $19,788 raise like Mr. Davis.  Let us not forget that Mrs. Monafo also got a $16,535 raise that year and Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Amo got raises of $4,779 and $9,648 respectively.  Are these raises the reason the District needed 3.1 million in Lottery advances?  Oh wait, I forgot the District was in a financial crisis.  How could the Board of Education approve these raises, lay teachers off, take money from the state and claim we were in a financial crisis?  So, who's the hamburgurlar?  Ronald is hot on his trail, but the hamburgular is still eluding our net.

Before, I end I would like to applaud one Dr. Peter Roswell.  Leading up to a financial crisis and his retirement, he managed to increase his last three years salary by a total of $36,176.  If only we could all just increase our salaries in our final three years of service but then again Ed Osborne and Eileen Rucker were the Board presidents.  

Therefore, I give the Hamburgurlar Award to.....
Maryellen Monafo
Peter Roswell

All that money for a woman who wastes time and cash on techpaths and lousy speakers?????? I thought NYS was screwed up!!

Mr. Kotter said...

The administrators got "Assistant Superintendent" attached to their titles, hence the significant bump in salary!!

Can I be an "Executive Teacher" and get more $$$ for the same job???
