Max Salary = $75,000.

Still well above fair market value.

Those teachers that don't like that are free to go. They should have no problem finding new positions paying more because they are "worth it".

Obviously I realize there is no chance of that happening. What will happen? They'll fire a few $45,000 teachers and a few lunch ladies to save 1 $125,000 gym teacher. Because as we already know: "it's all about the children".

What is the max salary for the administrators? $75,000.00 sounds about right and is well above markeet value. I'm sure they'll fire quite a few teachers to preserve the salaries of the do-nothing administrator types.

I certainly agree that the administrative salaries are out of control. However, its the teacher salaries driving this island into the ground first and foremost. It's really just sheer numbers: there are 100's if not 1000's of teachers for every administrator. While paying the administrators 5-10 times their market value needs to be dealt with, teacher salary is far, far more expensive and thus the more pressing need.

I was here a few months ago and did start/post in a few similar threads. However, I doubt I made enough of a stink to be remembered.

So much to complain about, so little time.

No school on Long Island has 100s let alone 1000s of teacher per administrator. Administrators are much more than just the Superintendent.

More importantly: I think it is ridiculous that a poster trying to hide behind the anonymity of a new name is trying to claim that they know what fair market value is. Come on the city data is already as anonymous as you make it, now you need multiple identies?

additionally please look into the definition of "fair market value" something which necessarily takes in previous dealings.

1 = This is the only identity I've ever had. I checked for the posts I did I few months back and they're gone. Whatever.

2 = Being that I don't understand fair market value could you explain it to me?

By the way - My goal here is to give (and get) actual information. I believe if people on Long Island had any idea of what was going on we would not be where we are at right now. Go ahead and try to discredit me by calling me another poster, pointing out spelling errors, etc.

You are living in the past CMNYY. Our local district has an administrator for every 10 teachers (and in fact one for every 125 students- I have done the math). Some districts have as many as thirty administrators. Administrator number and salaries ARE the problem. It is not like it used to be with one principal and maybe an assistant in each building and a superintendent and business official at headquarters.

Truth of the matter is that the Taxes in Sachem are artificially low.

They had a weenie Supt (Commuting form Westchester)who was gunning for a higher paying gig in Nassau. He got it by not taking the politically unpopular path of raising taxes and exhausting all of the reserve funds.

Hes tap dancing at Island Trees now. be afraid, be very afraid.

New York Governor's Salary VS School Superintendent's Salaries!

Hooray for mediocre.
