Thank-you for your interest in helping to rein in the FCBOE and our school district administration. Our district superintendent earned over 55% more than Governor Sonny Perdue in 2009 with 45 other administrators in our district who were compensated over $100,000 over the same period. For further details, please click on the blog tab above. It will take you to a letter published last year in the Fayette Citizen (with updated figures) indicating why the citizens of Fayette County need to intercede before more tax increases are considered. Remember that 83% of non-exempt property taxes go to the school district.
This petition will be delivered to the FCBOE to let them know that the taxpayers of Fayette County will not support planned tax increases to sustain exorbitant administrative salaries and an excess of administrative positions in our school district. It's purpose is to empower the citizens of Fayette County in holding the FCBOE accountable to where our education tax dollars are being spent while maintaining excellence in education for our children.

The petition follows:
As a resident of Fayette County, Georgia, I hereby direct the Fayette County Board of Education of Fayette County, Georgia to enforce the 4 items listed below. If the FCBOE refuses to abide by the tenets of this petition, I hereby vote for a recall of the board:
1) Cap the District Superintendent's salary to that of the State Superintendent for all GA schools ($129,849.96 in 2009).
2) Reduce all remaining administrator salaries by 20%. This does not apply to secretaries and support staff.
3) Allow for a single Asst Superintendent position while eliminating the Deputy Superintendent position.
4) Eliminate many Asst Principal positions: Limit those at the high school level to 2, retain a single Asst Principal at the middle school level and evaluate the necessity of these personnel at the elementary school level.
