Hello to All Farmington Hills School Parents:
I'm surprised and annoyed at the attitude of the current Supervisor and the School Board to authorize a pay hike during these economic times when people in the city are without jobs and encoutering foreclosures.
I'm irate that the school board and the Superintendent is being recommended for getting a pay hike of 8.25 % provided she gets others in the school system to agree on sign a contract to this raise of 8.25 %. What? about fiscal responsibility on the school board part.
I would like to see the board being transparent about the benefits they are receiving and having an independent Financial Cost Analyst to relook at the benefits namely:
1. Are they on a High Deductible or Health Spending Account plan
2. Freezing the City contribution to School emloyees 403 b contribution for the next couple years before they institute this back on. Like the ones the Chrysler/GM/FORD did during their restructuring.
3. To re-look at the Pension Benefits and take away these benefits and have the employees take care of their own retirement namely the 403 B that the state offers to its empolyees
My kids go to a local neighbourhood school here in Farmington Hills where they claim budget is tight and hence they are taking away the Computers at School and the kids are loosing their transportation.
All of you parents/citizens are too make your voice heared either by emailing/writing calling the Farmington Hills School board that what they are set to do is wrong and not fiscally responsible. They are giving themselves a raise while we the people are scarificing to make our ends meet.
The Board is out give themselves the raise while our legislators in Lansing atleast had the right mind set to not take a pay raise for this year.
Do the right thing let the Farmington Hills school board's has no moral authority to demand a raise and it's the superintendent's turn to be a leader and do the right thing by giving up a raise and negotiating a contract by freezing all raises for atleast this year.
Thank You

This is the most ignorant post I have ever read! Taking computers away from schools and losing their transportation? What planet are you on? As for taking away pensions, you should know that is unconstitutional and not just something that you decide to do. You sound like a disgruntled malcontent that is unhappy with your school and will do whatever it takes to "get back at" whoever pissed you off. Go cry in your soup.

Fire all of them and then re-hire teachers at half the pay.
