We have been messaged by multiple administrators (Yes, we were quite surprised to be honest) who are upset that no raise or change in salary structure has been announced for their positions. In fact, if no changes are made, many administrators will be paid less than some of the more experienced teachers. Some administrators could even make more money by becoming teachers again.
The raises were a good thing to do. But it seems the process of announcing them has been bungled. Nothing in writing or in email has been shared with faculty and an entire class of employee seems to have been left out.
The good news is that governance is considering raises. The awards during last weeks party also show that proper appreciation is being shown to the hard working faculty. Things seem to be moving in a better direction. Let’s hope that Superintendent Murphy can get the kinks ironed out quickly.
