Based on your experience, under what circumstances would you consider a 27% raise reasonable?

School district (1800 students) secretary/HR person, just starting her third year out of college (BS in Applied Business Mgmt) and with the district. This is her fourth raise since starting (at a rate that was on par with the other secretaries in the district, even though they were much more experienced), for a total compounded increase of 84%. Her current hourly rate is on par with than that of a fourth-year teacher with a bachelor's degree or a first-year teacher with a master's degree.

I have some serious problems with the size of her raises, but I'm trying to get some perspective before digging into this again.

Thanks.

Kathleen
