“We want to make sure our employees are fairly compensated for the work they do and the time and effort they put into their jobs,” said Superintendent Frank Jabbia. “We truly value all of our employees and want to provide the most compensation, benefits, resources, and support we can.”

As part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement Re-opener regarding salaries, a three percent across the board pay increase was proposed for all employees in addition to the two steps already agreed on in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The creation of an Employee Reserve Fund to provide yearly stipends to employees based on overages in the General Fund was also proposed.

For teachers and certificated employees, salary adjustments for advanced degrees, stipends for teachers at targeted schools and those teaching in critical shortage areas, and an increase in highly effective stipends were proposed. Retention incentives for current teachers in SWE positions or those teaching on an OFAT were also included.

For support employees, salary retention incentives for advanced degrees were proposed. District administrators and the Federation have agreed to negotiate bus driver operational expenses after the 2022 legislative session.
Memorandums of understanding were also proposed for reimbursement for renewal of a required professional license or certificate, an increase in the supply fee for certificated classroom teachers, and an increase in the travel reimbursement for mileage.

The School Board is considering the proposals and will vote at a Special Board Meeting May 12 at 5 p.m..

“We are eagerly awaiting news about state raises that we anticipate will further supplement salaries In addition to these changes,” said Superintendent Frank Jabbia. “I hope that these provisions along with the recently announced salary incentives for new and existing employees will help us retain and recruit the best of the best.”
