Inflation based on the CPI last year was 3.2% – I guess a raise is better than no raise.

I guess the bobble-heads consider this as an adequate consequence for walking off the job last year.

The teachers have served their punishment for last year’s “sick out” (even the ones who intended to be at school that day). Will they ever be deserving of a raise?

How do you qualify “deserve”. Many in the community that pay their wages and benefits have not seen a raise in years if they are fortunate enough to have a job.

Well if the dog track referendum passes that is the last raise they will be seeing for a long time. The school board is throwing them a bone hoping the teachers will think there will still be money for them after they spend every last penny and then some. They need their vote so ir is a small bribe. Our teachers are smarter than that. So I would break that raise down over 5 years if I were a teacher.

I’m not positive so I’m asking not stating…
Didn’t the teachers get an 8% raise last year?

No, the teachers did not get an 8% raise. They negotiated a roughly 2.5% raise, split into two stages to help cushion the costs to the District.
The District implemented half of the raise (about 1.25%) before Mr. Walker’s Act 10 took effect, so the other 1.25% was never implemented.
Where did you hear 8%?
@Kari: MBE did get a raise last year, and she donated that amount to the District (generating a tax credit for herself in the process).

2009-10 all staff took a pay freeze
2010-11 MBE got 5.4%, administrators got 4.8%, and there was discussion of teachers getting 3.2%, but I don’t remember if it actually happened
2011-12 if the agreement is still standing, MBE gets another 5.4% and teachers get 1.48%
I do remember something about MBE offering to give her raise back to the district (not sure if it was last year’s, this year’s, or both).

If you took the amount of $$ HSD pays to MBE over what she is worth, how many teachers could HSD hire?

just keep throwing the money in the black hole and “things will improve…”

It is very interesting to hear that the school district employees received a retro-active raise for the 2011/2012 school year as well as the next school year. Many employees were laid off, had their hours cut in half, and lost their benefits at the end of the school year since our district was supposed to be in such dire straights. Our school board needs to take a good look at the choices they are making for our Superintendent. The HS has now hired 2 hall monitors for the rest of the school year for safety issues, when they let one go at the end of the school year. Our residents need to speak up at the board meetings and let their voices be heard!

Now Mary BE will push a new 8th/9th grade building in the dog track site. Our city needs a new HS. I think there needs to be a public poll on what the citizens of Hudson would like to see go in the dog track, not what Mary BE thinks should go in there. Our school board will just go along with whatever she want to put out to the public, and then pay someone a five fiqure salary to write it out for her.

Don’t worry, the HSD will continue to remain and/or get more top-heavy under superintendent 2names. How many more $5 job-titles will be created and filled under her reign?
