I'm a Tech Director for a school district in Michigan. Money and budgets have been increasingly tight over the last several years, as I imagine they have for everyone. This year my hours were cut by more than half. I was told that if I can bring in more rentals (a.k.a. more revenue), that I could work more hours. So I'm left wondering: How am I doing in comparison to other auditoriums, performing arts centers, ect.? Last fiscal (school) year I generated about $26,000 in revenue. 1) Is anyone willing to share their ballpark figures? I know that there are more variables, circumstances, and determining factors between venues than I could ever hope to wrap my head around, but I'm still curious to hear some others' basic figures. Also, I'm hourly, not salary. My budgeted hours are intended to cover the school district's events, as well as outside rentals. I've tried excluding my outside rental hours from the district's hours, but to no avail. The way I see it, the district should budget me hours to spend on their events, period. And any hours I spend towards a rental should be sperate, seeings as such hours are included (covered) in the rental's bill. 2) Am I off in left field on this? Thoughts on any of this will be much appreciated!
