School Board votes to give themselves a nearly 6,291 dollars raise while giving veterans a pay cut.

You know I had hoped they might do the right thing, and there is a glimmer of hope as the union has requested to reopen contract negotiations for veterans, but at the end of the day, the SB voted to give themselves a 6k plus raise many while veterans took a pay cut. 

Teacher salary increases, as well as contract language modifications, were approved by the Board on January 12, 2021. The contract included an increased starting salary of $45,891 for teachers. 

Just like a first-year teacher’s salary went from 39,600 to 45,891, an increase of 6,291 dollars, so did the school boards. This as veterans who got the best and brightest and or school recognition money just took pay cuts. 

Now the union has asked to renegotiate for veterans. Still, the truth is this disrespected instigated by the state was compounded by the board, and their universal silence has been deafening.  

At the school board meeting, I asked how they could look veterans in the eye with them getting a big raise with vets taking a pay cut, and it appears the answer was very easy.
