School board, teachers finalize contract

School board, teachers finalize contract

She says she's always excited when people want to step up and become board members.

"It feels like they're taking something away from me - like a family member", Caltha Bentis said. We encourage you to vote today in your local school budget and school board elections. While doing rewarding work, school board members volunteer many hours of their free time for the good of all students K-12, most often with little thanks.

Superintendent Art Tate has asked the board to determine whether it supports Vision 2020 as the platform for the board to respond to the district's School Budget Review Committee and, if not, how the board intends to respond to the committee.

In an effort to encourage "innovative strategies", the bill would free Ball State from reporting Muncie schools' performance via the annual A-F grades measuring school and district improvement.

In the preliminary budget's general fund, there is $711,409 available for any appropriation desired by the trustees, Sarvey said.

Factoring in this loss of wages brings the average pay bump down to just.56% of an increase.

Additionally, a record number of candidates have filed to run for the United States House in Pennsylvania, including a large uptick of women.

Lilley is still employed by the district, but hasn't actually worked there this entire school year.

The district is also asking voters to cast ballots approving its proposed $93.5 million operating budget for the 2018-19 school year, which would slash approximately 70 full-time staff positions in an attempt to close a $4.7 million gap between expenditures and revenues. Oneida received a 1.86 percent increase in Foundation Aid over the current school year budget.




This will go into effect for the 2018-2019 school year.

The budget referendum will take place from 8 a.m.to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Madison Town Office. The board also shaved a mill off the tax rate a year ago.

ERES Academy's expansion hasn't been approved yet by OUSD's board, even though Arise has already spent millions on the new campus project with architects and consultants.

Polls will be open in the Montauk School library from 2 to 8 p.m.

But the ERES Academy expansion wasn't discussed as part of the Blueprint process, said Torres. He is running to finish the remaining two years of the three-year term. "We have no business closing any schools right now, but especially a school with some of the highest numbers of low SES (socio-economic status) and minority students in the district". "Why should one board member control and have the power to restrict the information to our whole board of elected officials?" She will be joined on the board by newcomer Jordana Sobey, who will be replacing Stephanie Bitis, who will not be running for reelection.

Because of those potential cap-piercings, in those two districts the proposed budgets for 2018-19 must be OK'd by 60 percent of those voting to pass, rather than a simple majority.

There are two candidates for the two open seats on the School Board. Ficarra noted that debt service is outside the budget. Ronald White, Lillian Tyree-Johnson and Douglass DeGroot are all seeking to continue serving on the Bridgehampton School Board.

Tuckahoe School Board member Sean Hattrick, who now serves on the board as chairman, is also running unopposed for a second three-year term on the board.

The Sioux City Education Association, which represents more than 1,000 teachers, agreed earlier on Monday to accept a three-year deal that includes a 2.08 percent pay increase before reductions and the elimination of "6-period pay" for middle and high school teachers and an overall pay increase of 0.56 percent, according to Rita Vannatta, the district's head of human resources.
