what exactly does that mean? no raise until the 3rd year?

To 7:29 & 7:30PM ~~ All that was said was that there are no increases in years 1 & 2 and a 3% increase in year 3 of the new agreement.

Progress was made tonight with 'diclosure' of the terms of the contract BEFORE approval.
Prior postings are right that acual costs of each year were not identified but as I said before it's a big step in the right direction.

Simply put salaries and benefits (contracts) drive the budget so knowing the COST of a CONTRACT before approval should be a must. I can tell readers that in the past the Greece school board had NO IDEA what the cost of a contract was prior to approval aka lifetime medical sound familiar.

I have said dozens of times the people responsible for budget increases are school boards via 'contracts' and although improvement is needed to comply with the Comptollers report - page 30, item 17 this was a step in the right direction.

To Charlie ~~ They also did not disclose the TOTAL 3 year cost. Saying that year 3 will result in a 3% increase tells me nothing unless I know what the 3% refers to.

Scats; your 11:24 posting is exactly right, cost figures were not identified and needs to be ASAP.
The point I was making was a comparison to the last 2 contracts approved - NO disclosure of any kind. If the board feels there is a 'benefit to the district' as identified in the Comptrollers report then stand up like adults and say what that benefit is.
Foreinstance, this contract was for the cost of sub teachers. The cost and need for sub teachers no doubt driven by the assinine absenteeism section of the teachers contract. That section of the teachers contract (one of many)representing school board incompetence on contracts.

I thought board policy was to show the cost of each part of a contract before voting.

To Charlie ~~ Ok, I gotcha.

To 7:35AM ~~ You expect the Greece BOE to follow their own policy? I'll bet you expected them to fire the drinking hockey coaches, too ;) You're NOT alone!
