Thank God for Gov. Cuomo. Superintendents who are retired are still being hired by schools on an "interim basis" at anywhere from $500 to $600 per DAY! There are so many new administrators that would love to have that position and are willing to word hard - but instead - these people who are getting their retirement check at the same time are keeping many educators out of jobs.

Yes, and Schnectady just hired a new superintendent who will be making a nice sum, not ridiculous on the surface. What is not often seen in these salaries is the extra stuff. In the district he just left he received a free car, a cell phone, and when he cut an administrative position he and another took on the extra duties of the cut admnistrator at "no pay." Well, no visible pay, but rumor has it his retirement got padded. Wonder what hidden clauses there are now here in Schenectady? Any truth to two year pay if the boarad fires him?
Never heard of teachers getting such benefits, but our dear Gov. is after them too. If a teacher retires and decides to sub, it is not at $500 a day, not even $300. They get sub pay. In some districts that's $60.
