Teacher salaries posted on new state Web site


The Post staff writer

A new Web site for Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel includes a database of salaries for all state workers and many other public workers including teachers and administrators at local school districts.

Mandel's site allows a curious taxpayer to search for salaries by name, department and salary range. For a given worker, the database returns gross wages in the most recent pay period, total pay for the year-to-date, and an estimated annual salary.

That means parents can look up the salary of their child's teacher or how much administrators in their school district earn.

The site also includes salary information for federal and some local officials, but only in the state's largest cities and counties. Mandel's office reported that it is seeking salary information for about 300,000 more local government workers and is prepared to issue public records requests to acquire the information.

Salary information now shown on the treasurer's Web site relies on data acquired from the Buckeye Institute, a conservative think tank, which also posts on its Web site public employee salary information acquired through public records requests.

A search of Mandel's Web site indicates that Medina's Randy Stepp is the highest paid school superintendent in Medina County. He earned a little more than $150,000 in 2010.

Although the site lists some salaries for 2011, the latest salary information on other school employees is listed for the year 2010.

Based on the 2010 salary information, the next highest paid superintendent in Medina County is Wadsworth's Dale Fortner, whose salary is listed at just over $127,000.

Following is a complete list of salaries for school superintendents in Medina County in 2010:

* Randy Stepp, Medina,$150,477

* Dale Fortner, Wadsworth,$127,126

* Michael Mayell, Brunswick,$125,000

* Catherine Aukerman, Highland,$122,100

* Michael Larson, Medina County JVS,$119,977

* Daryl Kubilus Jr., Cloverleaf,$105,000

* Dennis Honkala, Buckeye,$100,980 (former superintendent)

* Janice Wyckoff, Black River,$95,000.

In addition to having the highest paid superintendent, the Medina school district also has more highly paid administrators and teachers than other school districts in the county. Data on the treasurer's website indicates Medina schools have six administrators beside Stepp earning at least $100,000 a year, 19 other administrators earning at least $90,000, one teacher earning more than $90,000 and 99 teachers earning at least $80,000 annually.

Brunswick has seven administrators besides Mayell earning at least $100,000, 14 others earning $90,000 or more and 21 teachers earning at least $80,000.

Wadsworth has three administrators besides Fortner earning at least $100,000 annually and seven earning more than $90,000. Wadsworth also has 20 teachers earning more than $80,000 per year.

Highland has four administrators besides the superintendent earning at least $100,000 and four more who earn $90,000 or more annually. The district also has four teachers who earn at least $80,000.

The Medina County Career Center has one additional administrator besides the superintendent who earns $100,000, two more who earn $90,000 and 11 teachers who earn $80,000 or more.

Cloverleaf has one administrator besides the superintendent who earns more than $100,000 per year and two who earn more than $90,000. No Cloverleaf teachers make as much as $80,000 a year.

Honkala was the only Buckeye employee who earned $100,000. Two other administrators make more than $90,000 annually and no teachers in the district earn more than $80,000.

Black River's second highest paid administrator earns just over $80,000 annually. No other district employees make as much as $80,000.

And to think that the board is unwilling to reduce Stepp`s generous salary. At $150K+, there is plenty of room to make cuts.

Vote NO to the earned income tax credit just to stop this madness.

Thank you.

VOTE NO because they have not been honest about their cuts, they will stick another levy on later even if you do vote yes.(Remember the last one, they blew thru the money and did things they couldn't afford).

Test the teachers every year, get rid of the ones that sit on their thumbs and have an independent outside testing center. Weed them out and get the ones that want to teach.

Vote NO.

The MCCC "superintendent" is no more than a building principal, and is far overpaid for what his job actually entails. He should be rolled back about 5%, as the career center is less students total than any of the districts. I'd also like to ask why there is a building principal and 4 assistant principals. Seems top heavy.
