News : Trenton R-9 Board Of Education To Consider Salary Proposals
Posted by Randy on 2014/2/11 10:21:37 (315 reads) News by the same author

Five proposals regarding next years' teacher salaries have been taken under advisement by the Trenton R-9 board of education. Members of the board last evening were presented with proposals by the salary and welfare.

Three involve percentage increases while two offer specific dollar amounts for raises. A decision by the school board is expected next month.

Speaking on behalf of the committee was Instructor E'lisha Gass.

She identified three concerns. One is that current wages are not competitive with similarly sized schools. Another is that 26 teachers had their salaries frozen for a two-year period (from 2004 to 2006) and want those years to count on the experience side of the salary schedule. And the current salary schedule, Mrs. Gass claims, lacks incentive for teachers to earn advanced degrees.

Each of the five proposals calls for wage increases that could cost the R-9 district from 96 thousand dollars UP to more than 448 thousand dollars. The nearest “common ground” involving two proposals has a difference of 59 thousand dollars. That's using an across the board five percent increase costing an estimated 255 thousand dollars; compared to a
one thousand dollar hike on the base, projected to cost 196 thousand dollars.


Proposals offered by the committee include salary increases of five, seven and half, and ten percent. Also included were increases of 500 dollars and one thousand dollars onto the base teacher salary.

Members of the committee contend a percentage increase creates a more equitable salary schedule than adding a flat dollar figure to the base.

Committee members also claim adding a specific amount like 500 or a thousand dollars to the base each year has not been sufficient for Trenton to stay competitive with other school districts.

The current R-9 beginning teacher salary is 28 thousand dollars.
