PG Schools Raise Pay Figures: 4 Secretaries' Salaries Exceed Earlier Report


Dean, Mensah, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


New figures from the Prince George's County schools show that the top secretaries in the system earn more than $60,000 - thousands more than earlier reported and, in one case, almost $10,000 more than the highest teacher's salary.

The Washington Times reported yesterday that five secretaries in the county school system received 10 percent raises that boosted their salaries to between $50,000 and $59,999 a year. Superintendent Jerome Clark, who granted the raises, said at the time that he could not remember the exact salaries.

School officials revised those numbers yesterday, in response to questions from The Times. They said only four secretaries received raises from Mr. Clark in March but that their salaries, after the raises, ranged from $55,499 to $67,490.

"The superintendent's secretaries are no . . . busier than school secretaries who have to deal with 2,200 kids, parents, teachers and a myriad of other responsibilities in the school building," said James Shearer, executive director of Local 2250, Association of Classified Employees, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).

His union represents 4,800 school workers, including nurses, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and secretaries, some of whom work at the board's central office with the four secretaries who got raises from Mr. Clark.

Three secretaries who work for Mr. Clark got raises. They are Marie Chaney, who now earns $67,490 a year; Betty Marshall, who makes $61,215; and Linda Gibson, who earns $58,300.

The fourth raise went to Ann Robey, the secretary for Jim Beall, the chief of divisional administration for budget, finance and management. …
