School Board moves on plan for 4 new schools

"The new agreement, which was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the MEA and school board, will provide for continued stability for the district's professional staff. Negotiations remained positive, and continual progress was made with each passing negotiating session".

"What's on the agenda is a 3 percent raise across the board and a 1 percent bonus this year (for teachers)", said Laura Pearson, board president for the Castaic Union School District, before the board's regular meeting Thursday, when the raise was approved.

The Delta board of education's proposed operating budget for the next school year has a surplus of just under $57,000, a sharp contrast from deficits in the millions that had been the norm for years. He asked for the school district to include the community and find a solution that would save the strings program. The district is dipping into its reserves once again, this time for $400,000, an amount lower than previous years.

"We want you to back us and make it happen", Clark said, calling for a substantial salary increase, fixing gaps on the salary scale and absorbing the full increase in health insurance premiums. Montgomery Township sends 4,608 students to the public school district and Rocky Hill sends 111 students.

Next year, district officials plan to help principals integrate drill schedules into their school calendars so they can stay on top of the requirements.

The middle schools and high schools also need four FTEs for core and elective classes, including science, English and social studies. Full-time band and choir teachers would be split between the middle and high schools.

Of these exercises, Watson said, most schools are emphasizing lockdowns, in light of recent school shootings in Parkland, Fla., and St. Mary's County.

"It's a big problem, and it's a now problem, so we have our work cut out for us", Lee said.

Darin Scherr, business and operations manager for the district, told the board that a final budget needs to be submitted to the county on August 10. Teachers have had to use additional resources to supplement textbooks that aren't aligned with current college and career readiness standards.

"Last week we heard that the legislature is going to fully fund the formula".
