Fact Checker digs into DeKalb schools’ latest financial report

Stan Jester has posted a new Fact Checker, ’10/07/2013 – Financial Report – DeKalb Schools Board Meeting’

Two big ticket items need to be reconciled with actuals and the vendor report is
alarming.

DE46 Financial Report
We need to see the DE46 data turned into the state last month. The DE46 is the
form used to send the final YTD fiscal report to the state. In August, the board
was presented with the June Fiscal Report containing the YTD FY’13 information.
During the months of July and August, the administration kept dumping expenses
into the FY’13 budget, but the Fiscal Reports for those months only reflect
FY’14. Final transmission and Superintendent sign-off of the FY’13 DE46 was due
September 30.

QBE Funding
We need a reconciliation report on QBE earnings for the FY’14 budget. The
largest component of the QBE Formula is QBE Earnings derived from the FTE count
and the QBE weighted table. The state has published the FY’14 weighted table and
official FTE count day was 10/01/2013, so we can now reconcile the QBE earnings
in the budget. The QBE Formula also contains Categorical Grants, Equalization
Grants and Austerity Reductions, but those line items in the budget can be
reconciled at a later date.

Connecting the Vendor Report and the FY’14 Budget
The FY’14 Budget has a line item for “School Board Members.xls”. The School
Board Members.xls budget is broken out and the bulk is legal fees and
settlements. In the School Board Members.xls budget, BOARD LEGAL FEES, are
assigned the account number 101.48.93.01 which correspond to the ACCOUNT number in the Vendor Spend Report.

Legal Fees
The August Vendor Spend Report indicates that $846K was paid to various law
firms in June and July for work done in FY’13. The vendor report further
indicates those expenses to be paid out of the FY’14 budget. Dr. Bell said,
“if this stuff was moved forward after we closed the books completely on
’13, then there’s no other place to pay it accept for out of ’14”. So,
where are these legal expenses reflected in the August Financial Report?

Other Questions
* The Aug Vendor Spend Report only shows paid invoices. Where are the invoices
that haven’t been paid yet?
* On average, it takes 40 days to enter an invoice into the system. That needs
to be addressed.
* MLA (McKenna Long & Aldridge) has been billing $50K/month since February. The first 3 months show up on the FY’13 vendor report. Where are the rest of the MLA invoices?

Modified Accrual Basis For Accounting
Dr. Bell, CFO, said, “The financial report is on a modified accrual basis. This
spend report is really on a cash basis.”
* Salaries appear to be reported on a cash basis. The total budgeted amount for
salaries should be divided by 12 and accrued monthly at that rate
($335,834,812/12 = $27,986,234 per month).
* How can the financial report be on a modified accrual basis when 95% of the
data is salaries and vendor spends report, both of which appear to be reported
on a cash basis?

    Stan points out: “Salaries appear to be reported on a cash basis. The total budgeted amount for salaries should be divided by 12 and accrued monthly at that rate.”

    There appears to be a bigger problem than that: I was recently told that benefit costs (healthcare, retirement, etc) were either not correctly calculated or intentionally underestimated. Now, in the middle of the school year, Principals and their bookkeepers are finding out that their individual schools are overbudget and/or not able to fill positions they were planning on filling.

    I do not fully understand what I’m hearing, but apparently back during the summer, when Principals were staffing their schools for the current school year, the Palace provided inaccurate (lowballed?) financial costs to individual schools.

    Here is an example to illustrate the apparent problem: in the summer, the school bookkeeper checked with the Palace and was told by the Palace that a particular teacher/position would cost DCS $60k in the coming school year. The school Bookkeeper then budgeted that amount ($60k) for that teacher. Now the Palace has come back to the Principal and said, whoops, that teacher actually costs DCS $63k a year…. and *you* have to take up that $3k out of your school’s budget.

    This may not sound like a big deal, but if that $3k error was made on 25 different positions at a school, then that school’s budget is suddenly in the red by $75k….

    I’m also hearing that the schools are having real trouble dealing with this because they simply cannot get accurate budget and other financial information from the Palace. Don’t believe what Thurman claims, DCS is still a financial train wreck.

    Keep up your good work, Stan!

    Here are the individual school budgets. For each school, every teacher and expense is itemized. –Stan

  3. dsw2contributor says:

    Thank you Stan!

    I opened the spreadsheets for a few random schools and the rows labeled “Principals” and “State Health Insurance” just jumped out at me.

    State Health Insurance: I think this is the problem I was told about. In every school I checked, the *budgeted* amount for 2013 was lower than whatthe school had actually spent in 2011 and/or 2012. (I dunno about the rest of you, but my health insurance costs have not gone done since 2011 and 2012!) Furthermore, if a school has a proposed amount for 2014, that 2014 amount is closer to the 2011 and 2012 amounts than to the 2013 budgeted amount….. so my conclusion is that the 2013 numbers were likely lowballed. Now that the schools are incurring actual health insurance costs, those higher-than-budgeted amounts are having to come from somewhere else in the school’s budget.

    Principals: These rows show the drastic pay cuts many DCS Principals have had between 2011 and now. DSW2 hinted at the repercussions of this in the “Do we have a principal problem in DeKalb?” topic started on October 4, 2012 (last year).
    https://dekalbschoolwatch.wordpress.com/2012/10/04/do-we-have-a-principal-problem-in-dekalb/comment-page-3/

    Does anyone have a list of Principals for 2011, 2012 and 2013? It would be VERY interesting to see which Principal(s) have been given the biggest paycuts over the last three years!

  4. TracyW says:

    Remember these people magically found 30 million dollars just chilling in the books last year. How many of this stellar accounting staff has been replaced this year? Any of them? 40 days to enter an invoice?

    Do we still teach accounting or general business classes in DeKalb? Perhaps there are a few dozen students who could perform this function – under the instruction of their teacher and not the accounting staff.

  5. concerned citizen says:

    Every day another tragedy is found in our school system. Who needs to get this information Stan and DSC2 found? And thank you, TracyW, for your outstanding comment on the situation!

  6. Alexandra says:

    How can health insurace and retirement fund be so high if the school district is not paying into the TRS or paying any insurance cost?

  7. howdy1942 says:

    We will have an opportunity next May (perhaps July) to elect a new school board. If the voters do a good job and we do get a competent board, then this superintendent and the palace will be history.

  8. DeKalb Inside Out says:

    New board? That’s funny! I was digging around Stan’s website and saw what Rep. Tom Taylor said at the 08/23/2013 Coffee With Friends of Nancy, “Out of 23 members of the DeKalb Delegation, only 6 of us stood with [the Governor] and supported [removing the DeKalb School Board]”

    74% of the DeKalb Delegation wanted to keep Walker, SCW, Cunningham and Edler on the board. I suspect 74% of DeKalb’s voters will vote us right back there next year … minus the 2 at-large seats.

  9. DCSS is paying into TRS (Teachers Retirement System). They don’t have any choice. DCSS is NOT paying into the TSA (Tax Sheltered Annuity) which was approved by faculty and staff in return for agreeing to drop Social Security. The TSA was supposed to replace Social Security. This is extremely important, even to faculty and staff who have worked elsewhere and can collect Social Security based on their earlier work record, because Social Security is cut by about 1/3 for those who get a pension from an organization that did not pay into Social Security. This is true for DCSS retirees who have paid the required 40 quarters (10 work years) into Social Security working for organizations that paid into Social Security. This is true even for retirees who seek to collect Social Security based on a spouse’s work record — even if the spouse retired with a pension from an organization that paid into Social Security.

  10. HA Hurley says:

    I have heard of several retired educators who receive GA TRS retirement, but were told by Social Security that they earn too much and did not qualify for SS. True! They all paid into SS, or were married to spouses who received SS. Very confusing! Any clarification on this? These retirees met with SS in person, but no luck. This appears to be unique to retired educators.

  11. Jeff Bragg says:

    @Hurley 7:01pm The interaction of Social Security calculations (and eligibility) with the state-controlled pensions provided to most teachers and local government workers is very complicated. It also varies dramatically from person to person, primarily based on the ratio of pension payments from Social Security compared to payments from the independent state system. To begin to understand this, go to http://www.ssa.gov and look at the topics WEP (Windfall Elimination Provision) and GPO (Government Pension Offset). In my case (I was a mid-career changer) I have a state TRS pension based on 14 years of teaching and Social Security based on way more than the 40 quarters needed for eligibility. I will lose approximately 40% of my Social Security pension. When my better-paid wife retires and I can claim spousal benefits, I’ll probably lose around 60%! If DeKalb had continued to pay into Social Security, I would not lose anything.
    Jeff Bragg

  12. Dekalbite2 says:

    @jeff
    That is exactly why the Board established the TSA in lieu of Social Security. The teachers (I was one of them) voted to opt out with the Board agreeing to contribute to a TSA. When The TSA was taken away, it left DeKalb way below ALL of the other metro systems in compensation for teachers. It’s not surprising we had to hire 800 new teachers this year. The real losers are the students. We will continue to lose teachers, but students are trapped in a system that doesn’t value them with leaders who have absolutely no idea on how to move them forward academically.

  13. dekalbteacher says:

    dsw2contributor,

    I don’t think principal (or assistant principal pay) is the problem. According to open records, in 2012 , 57 or our 141 paid principals earned $100,000+ salaries; another 57 earned $90,000 salaries;17 earned $80,000+.

    Who evaluates these principals (or assistant principals) and how? Has anyone on Thurmond’s new and improved team or at SACS examined the skill set or hiring practices of and for our generously paid administrators? How many have experience outside Dekalb or Georgia (teaching or business) or any real teaching experience? It takes three full years of teaching to earn tenure and probably five years to really learn the ropes. How many of the educators making the curriculum and instruction or classroom managements decisions and plans in and out of schools have any real experience or success?

    One other salary question: what determines salaries? The 18 2012 assistant superintendents brought home anything from $245,263.20 (Ramona Tyson) to $89,640.26. One of this and last year’s regional superintendents was paid $101,896.20 as a a principal in 2012.

  14. dsw2contributor says:

    dekalbteacher @October 27, 2013 at 11:02 AM – “I don’t think principal (or assistant principal pay) is the problem. According to open records, in 2012 , 57 or our 141 paid principals earned $100,000+ salaries; another 57 earned $90,000 salaries;17 earned $80,000+.”

    But Principals are no longer making what they made in 2012…. I am told that many of them were given $15k to $20k paycuts, and those paycuts appear to be confirmed by the spreadsheets Stan has posted on his website. The paycuts have sent morale into the toilet, which is perfectly understandable: how happy would you be if you were suddenly taking $1200 to $1500 less home each month?

    It is becoming increasingly clear where Mr. Thurmond “found” the money: he took it out of individual school budgets. He lowballed health insurance costs, slashed Principal pay, and ran off *HUNDREDS* of long-time DCS teachers and replaced them with lower-cost new hires and/or substitutes.

  15. midvaledad says:

    Can anyone tell me why the principal at Livsey Elementary, Dr. Wilson, is budgeted $158,547 in salary when the Compensation & Classification page says the top of the elementary principal pay range is $109,200?
    http://www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/human-resources/salary-ranges/

  16. Stan Jester says:

    By the looks of their employment history, Jamie Wilson was a HUMAN RESOURCES DIR making as much as $166,008 in 2009.
    http://stanjester.com/EmploymentHistoryDetails.aspx?Id=16235

  17. dsw2contributor says:

    @midvaledad – It is probably because the salary range for the “Chief Human Resources Officer” title tops out at $159, 216.

  18. concerned citizen says:

    And that would be Dr. Smith???? DS2contribution, there’s no way Thurmond is smart enough to take the cuts where he did (and I do agree he did). But someone else told him what to do. There’s no way he could have done this with his pea-sized brain. Who figured out how to do this?

  19. dsw2contributor says:

    concerned citizen: Dr. Jamie Wilson was “Chief Human Resources Officer” before Dr. Smith – perhaps Wilson is still drawing the salary for his old position?

    momfromhe11, thanks for sharing the information about Donna Elder.

  23. howdy1942 says:

    momfromhe11 – Thanks for your post about Donna Edler. I often did not agree with her positions, but I admired her for being straightforward and for her courage. As I recall, she defeated Zepora Roberts, for which all of Dekalb County should be grateful. She fought the good fight against cancer and I wish that she had won that fight. When she first announced that she had breast cancer, I remember writing her and wishing her well. She sent me the nicest response. May she rest in peace.

    Stan: Is your list the Central Office Administration and their salaries, or the Dekalb Court prosecutor’s Docket and bail bonds? Its hard to tell ….

  27. Interesting line item on the new financial report:

    Yanceys Mobile Home Moving Inc —

    $475,418 paid to them since July 5th.

    Woozers! That is a lot of trailer moving.

    DCSWatch, I wonder if you have uncovered another F&F contracting scam?

    I note:
    (1) According to open.georgia.gov, there were three Yanceys on the DCS payroll in 2011 and 2012.

    (2) A search on the company’s name shows that it is using this as its business address:

    YANCEY’S MOBILE HOME MOVING INC.
    326 HILLCREST RD.
    HOGANSVILLE, GA 30230
    706-882-9898

    However, google’s streetview shows a McMansion on a narrow country lane at that address.

    (3) Several directories having listings for the company that include this line:
    “Company Representative: BLONDELL YENCEY”
    Notice how the last name is misspelled – it has two Es and no A.

    Blondell Yancey, “the Owner and Operator of Yancey Mobile Home Moving, Inc before retiring”, passed away on July 2, 2013 at age 78. Here is her obituary:
    http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Blondell-Yancey&lc=4589&pid=165645805&mid=5588416

    If I am correctly understanding DCSWatch’s comment above, then the $475,418 paid to her company started 3 days *after* her passing.
