MDUSD Salaries are online at CCTimes

What do you think about public employee salaries being available to all?

At this link http://www.mercurynews.com/salaries/bay-area/2010 you can see salaries for every individual, not just general position salaries, but every individual's name and position is posted for all to see.

You can also look at some of the surrounding districts if you've been interested in comparisons.

Now keep in mind, I'm pretty sure this is not a true depiction of what teachers get in their pocket as possibly factored in are their benefits, etc and not factored in are their out of pocket insurance, union dues, etc.

It's probably not a real fair release as there is no qualifications on the numbers....  From MDEA's facebook page, "Unfortunately, they relied on a single source and did no confirmation of the gross numbers...."

  2. Overpaid Superintendent for a struggling district. I know we need admin at Dent but that is a pretty top heavy admin!

  3. There are some teachers making over 100K I had no idea. Not too bad of a profession making that time and getting all that vacation time.

  4. Those are not teachers - those are Dent Center administrators

  5. If only we could be privvy to discipline like we are salaries. Why it it that it is easier to get salary than a teachers history of discipline or complaints?

    California Ed Code. It is time to tell politicians like Tom Torlakson and Mark DeSaulnier that their efforts to protect unions hurt our children. Neither of these men support the elimination (or reform) of tenure. Tenure simply protects the weakest of teachers. Every good teacher who wants to elevate the perception of teaching to the level of professionalism it deserves should want to eliminate tenure.

    Anon 9:12, some teachers do make upwards of $100,000. They get compensation for advanced degrees and longevity (step-and-column increases), serving as department chairs, coaches, and/or on committees, working during summer school or the extended year (Special Ed), and other "extra duties" outside of the regular school-year work day. Tasks for which teachers can earn additional compensation are listed in the teachers' contract.

  8. Yep...that's where the money goes. The Super and his buddies. But don't worry they'll keep raising class sizes, implementing furlough days and cutting teachers' salaries. Shameful!

    And the CC Times just reported that the Superintendent in San Ramon or Antioch (?) just turned down his 3% raise that he was due. Hmmmm

  9. Can't believe the CFO makes only $132K (pretty low for any CFO) while the Superintendant makes way more than he's worth!!!!!
