In March of 2014, I filed a FOIL request for the per-session time sheets of Manhattan Center for Science and Math AP Daniel Albetta. The DOE Legal Department outright refused to give me the information I requested. So I turned my sights to the Internet and a website called See through NY (http://www.seethroughny.org) Since all city employees salaries are public I decided to search Daniel Albetta name.
In 2009, Daniel Albetta received $33,793 in per-session
In 2009, that was the approximate salary of a first year teacher.
In 2013, Daniel Albetta’s per-session salary dropped to $18,293. That is the approximate salary of a school aide.
During the five year span that Mr. Albetta was shaking down the school system, teachers at Manhattan Center were informed that there was no per-session money for tutoring or running clubs, yet in 2010 Mr. Albetta earned $29,000 in per-session money. In total Mr. Albetta had earned approximately $160,000 in a five year span on per-session alone. That was enough money to hire 3 new teachers.
My question is a simple one. How does the AP of Security earn that type of money for a school that ranks in the bottom 10% of violent incidents?
