This is a follow up to my recent DCS salary post. The first document is pretty straight forward. It will shed some light on the pay for certain positions and compare them to past years. The remaining documents are an update to the DCS Transportation Department’s employees’ salaries (bus drivers, bus aides, and SPED bus drivers). I have discussed discrepancies with the 2013-2014 school year’s salaries for approximately 80 DCS Transportation Department employees. These doc…uments clearly reflect huge discrepancies! Many of the employees listed will tell you that they absolutely did NOT make the salary posted for 2013-2014. You can tell by the 2014 salary that the 2013 salaries are way off and especially when compared with what the individual was making in 2010. This list is not a complete list of drivers and aides. There are more than 200-250 drivers and aides employed by the district. The employees listed are simply the ones that had huge discrepancies. These are not teachers that teach and drive a bus. It should also be noted that any discrepancies are not the fault of the employee. The employee is not responsible for entering this information into the MSIS data system!
The information provided here came straight from the MS Department of Education via a public records request with the exception of the 2010 salaries. The 2010 salaries were posted in the Commercial Appeal and can be found by going to the following link: http://www.commercialappeal.com/…/desoto-county-schools-sa…/. I am more than happy to email a copy of the 2013 and 2014 salaries to anyone that is interested in having a copy. Just pm me with your email address.
Review the documents and use them as an informational resource. Tax payers should pay close attention to how their tax dollars are being spent. Stay informed and stay engaged!
(On a side note: I do feel bad for the Assistant Principals, because their pay seems to be as stagnant as the teachers’ pay).
