Who is this Ben Jakes? Why is he referred to as the “Superintendent” of Destiny? Destiny HAS a principal paid over $85,000 – Clarence Callaway (retired DCSS administrator and husband of Frankie Callaway, also a retired DCSS administrator who is employed at Leadership Prep). Why does he make over half the salary of the actual superintendent (in his TWO combined salaries)?

ATKINSON,CHERYL L H SUPERINTENDENT $241,694.11 $8,068.15

    Stan, this Destiny Academy is totally a wreck. Where did the money come from? I know the infamous Callaways and have worked with them. Friends and Family – what a joke they are professionally.

  2. Jessica Lembach says:

    Speaking of salaries…I am a DCSS teacher and was recently made aware that you publish our salaries online. Since I am a public servant, I have no issue with that, however, your information is wildly inaccurate. You have my salary from 2011 listed as being over $67, 000… I WISH!!! Even now, 3 years later, I make $10,000 LESS than that. (Btw, that’s with multiple degrees and 22 years in the system.) Please fact check more carefully, as misinformation such as that gives the public a very skewed perception of the realities of teachers’ wages. Thank you!

  3. @Jessica: Thanks for bringing us your concerns. We get our information from the state’s reporting website. I don’t think there is anywhere else we could get more accurate information. Although we don’t recall mentioning your salary by name, and it doesn’t come up on a search of the blog, if as you say, your salary is incorrectly here, then either DCSS has incorrectly reported it to the state or the state has made some kind of error. Or perhaps this number includes benefits, even though it is described simply as ‘salary’. You may want to check it yourself – it’s public access. Here’s the link:

    Open Georgia. Gov
    http://www.open.georgia.gov/sta/viewMain.aud

    Actually, since you asked, we went ahead and looked it up at the state’s website. This is what they have on record for you:
    LEMBACH,JESSICA A GIFTED ELEMENTARY TE $65,051.19 (salary) $219.00 (travel)
    DEKALB COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATI 2013

    If you find this is incorrect, you may want to poll your teacher friends. All teachers, please check the state’s link to see if your salary is reported incorrectly. If it is, please send an email to Ty Tagami at the AJC. Perhaps he will dig up a report – he has far greater access to records than we.

  4. Hi, Jessica!

    As stated, we obtain all salary information from open.georgia.gov, a website maintained by the State of Georgia. Could you please show us where we have misstated salary information pertaining to you? We will make a correction if we have published an erroneous salary for you. Here’s what open.georgia.gov shows for you beginning with FY 2009 (July 1, 2008 – June 30, 2009) through FY 2013 (July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013):
    FY 2013 — $65,051.19 (salary) $219 (travel)
    FY 2012 — $65,537.08 (salary)
    FY 2011 — $67,674.43 (salary)
    FY 2010 — $66,258.00 (salary)
    FY 2009 — $67,698.00 (salary)

    Salary information is provided to the state by DeKalb County Schools. If what is shown is incorrect and if it is more than the gross DCS salary you report on your income tax forms, you need to speak with your accountant or tax advisor ASAP — before you hear from the IRS.

  5. Confused says:

    Can someone explain why the CURRENT teacher salary scale teacher-salary-schedule shows no additional contribution from DCSD (at least at the T5/10 year scale)? http://www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/human-resources/teacher-salary-schedule

    Are they not contributing any local funds to our salaries? I looked at Gwinnett http://www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us/careers%5Ccareershr.nsf/1E9AF6BA19EE8BD285257CDA000E6DE2/$file/Teacher_Salary_Schedule_FY15.pdf and even though the starting salaries are lower, they do pay at least a little more than the state salary schedule states (at a T5-10).
    http://www.gadoe.org/Finance-and-Business-Operations/Budget-Services/Documents/FY15SalarySchedule_official.pdf

    The years after that, DCSD pays LESS than the state!!!!
