New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Ufsd Teacher Absenteeism Report. – 18.2%

moneycapBelow is a breakdown of teacher absence costs for the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Ufsd. These numbers were reported to various Federal and State agencies in 2011-2012. To our knowledge, they have never been compiled in this manner. The individual district results can vary widely with some being very normal and others seeming to be completely out of normal. In some cases, public school teachers may be very sick. In other cases where up to 100% of the teachers are taking 10+ days off, there may be a serious systemic problem. Statewide concerns should be addressed directly to NY education officials and legislators. Those results are far beyond what normal should be as the Charter school totals suggest.  As always we encourage parents and taxpayers to share this information.

Thoughts to consider.

The results below should be higher as they only include information on fulltime New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Ufsd teacher absences. A more accurate and much larger number would also include absences of the administration and other employees plus other costs such as health/welfare insurance. Additionally, our breakdown is based on the reported number of “10 or more days” and does not include exact absences beyond 10 days or amounts for teachers taking less than 10 days.  We ask that you treat these numbers as a starting point for a discussion with local district officials if you feel the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Ufsd results are abnormal.

In some cases, public school teachers may be very sick. In other cases where up to 100% of the teachers are taking 10+ days off, there may be a serious systemic problem. Statewide concerns should be addressed directly to NY education officials and legislators. Those results are far beyond what normal should be as the Charter school totals suggest.  As always we encourage parents and taxpayers to share this information.

Thoughts to consider.

The results below should be higher as they only include information on fulltime Syracuse City School District teacher absences. A more accurate and much larger number would also include absences of the administration and other employees plus other costs such as health/welfare insurance. Additionally, our breakdown is based on the reported number of “10 or more days” and does not include exact absences beyond 10 days or amounts for teachers taking less than 10 days.  We ask that you treat these numbers as a starting point for a discussion with local district officials if you feel the Syracuse City School District results are abnormal.

Data Sources: US Dept Of Labor, NY State Education Department. All data compiled and totaled in MS Excel using simple math commands. If the numbers above contain significant “No Data” results, that is because the district or NYS did not report the information at the time the datasets were compiled.
