School board ponders funding, teacher pay

Kathy Murphy

The vote to approve the proposed furloughs passed 5-4, with the four opposing directors believing the board should have taken two more weeks to examine alternative options suggested by the Quakertown Community Education Association.

Although the Waccamaw schools are growing, enrollment in the district is down this year.

Violinist Julie Foss, a junior at Astoria High School, said she has been playing nine years with Calvin-Pederson.

A group of over a dozen high school students and several parents appeared before the School Committee at their meeting Monday to appeal for the retention of High School Principal Adam Bakr. For example, the board wanted to fund 30 days of educational assistants in kindergarten and maintain a full school year and meant to finish buying new reading materials and begin buying some new science books.

"I could not be more excited to be coming back home", Potter said.

Beacock doesn't deny contacting councillors, but said it was done in response to Smith's email, which stated that the board is not working on a site, nor would the board engage with town officials.

District chair Lenora Trenaman said SD8 now has $83 million in deferred maintenance costs. "I think in order to digest these suggestions we need more time".

Before the meeting adjourned, the board voted to absorb the full 3 percent increase in health insurance premiums for those who took the most basic plan.

The Bucyrus City Council will be asked to approve the same Memorandum of Understanding that was approved by our board members. Instruction expenditures include activities directly associated with the interaction between teachers and students, including teacher salaries and benefits, supplies (such as textbooks), and purchased instructional services, according to public school district fiscal data from the National Center for Education Statistics. That has led to some misunderstandings, Simmons said. She also provides support for our staff in the areas of lockdowns, advocacy, safety briefings and debriefings, in-school infractions (which she admits is the worst part of her job when she has to arrest students) and individualized training.

The high school sending-receiving agreement with Cranbury is expiring in 2020.

On February 8th, 2017, two board members from the school district reported that they had received explicit text messages and photographs of Albano.

"The fact-finder's report ensured that numerous pay inequalities that existed from previous contracts would be addressed", said Gregory Leonard, the co-chairman of the union's negotiating team and a social-studies teacher at ConVal Regional High School.

A Clinton City Schools stalwart and educator in his own right, owning close to half a century of knowledge accrued as a teacher, administrator and coach, E.R. Mason passed away on Thursday. "We are elated that many of those problems were corrected".

"You end up talking to the principals about the curriculum, but you also end up talking about the facilities", Coble said.

The board also approved the hiring of John Zauche for the Middle School Band/Vocal position.
