Concerned Hamburger's Data Analysis
At this rate of compensation one would imagine that these three individuals have some kind of magical skill or knowledge that uniquely qualifies them for this kind of compensation.
One would think that all the lawyers and consultants that have been hired under the reign of Steven Achramovitch would be unnecessary due to the clearly talented individuals each making close to $200,000 per year including benefits.
Is this the case?
It appears not.
In fact, the two principals mentioned have each managed Hamburg High School for well over ten years, and during this period of time, the school has consistently slipped in the rankings and fallen behind other schools in Erie County whose principals earn far less.
So why the big bucks?
$553,328 equates to approximately 10 teachers if one were to apply the Steve Achramovitch logic of $55,000 per FTE.
(definition: FTE: Full Time Equivalent n. educator and/or staff member, human being with feelings and families).
