Hello Michelle,

I received this request for information on Monday. I am writing to let you know that the information that you have requested, annual salaries for each person by position for FY2009, is available on the Cambridge Public School's website:

This information is included in the FY 2008-2009 Budget, which is available on-line. Budget information can be found in the Chief Financial Officer's webpage (Administrative Departments>Chief Financial Officer>Financial Operations-Budget). I
have provided a link below that you may copy to your browser that should get you to the information that you are interested in. The document (a PDF) is called Salary Detail by AU.

This document will provide a list of school district employees with position titles and salary. The sort is by Accountable Unit (i.e. School or Department). In order to add the cost of benefits to salary, you should add 28.8% of salary for any
position that is .67 FTE or greater. Benefits include Health, Dental, Pension and Medicare.

If you would prefer that we take this report and add a column in order to calculate benefits for you, there will be a charge equal to the amount of time it takes one of my budget analysts to do this work. Please let me know if you would like me to
provide you with such a report.
