Thanks for the link - salaries seem great to me. A principal should be making a 6 figure income - they all have their masters and should be compensated well for being in charge of all the precious children in our lives. I also think $35k - $40k is way too low for our teachers - makes me sad to think of how important their job is and how much more they should make. We all want our bosses to pay us well, but because we are the ones paying their salaries, we are looking for them to make less - really, people need to get their priorities straight. Children are the future of the world - never forget that.

You're an emotional mess. I think it's disgraceful that district leaders want to hide our business from us. I think it's disgraceful
that Sass and company are poised to put us into even more debt while we have money in the bank.

Your children were never the prioity to teachers unions or to the state. The children are used as emotional pawns by the unions for power and to put money in their own pockets. Your kids, in this state, are nothing more than a dollar sign.

Do you know what supply and demand is? Do you know there are many good teachers and adminstrators are available?

If you want to pay by your emotions, move to Greece. Seems it's working out real well there.

There are countless studies proving that more money does not make an education better. Look at D.C., they spent what,$15,000 per student and it's a mess.

Most of this boils down to politics and teachers will probably agree. However, their gravy train pension is not sustainable, in this state anyway, so budgets must be cut. Businesses do it everyday.

The public sector has yet to learn how to function within a budget..."we can always tax people more".

Teachers work what, 150 days a year? that's a nice salary for that amount of time. It truly is.

Whatever - it's disgusting to me the way people talk on this blog. I'm also sick of people wanting everything and not willing to pay for it. I have had nothing but good experiences with this district and have loved the teachers my children have had. It is important to me that my kids get the best there is and I am willing to pay for it. My husband makes a 6 figure income with a bachelor degree and I think that we need to pay our teachers and administrators fairly. You think that a principal shouldn't be making 6 figures - what are you thinking is good?$35,000 is too much for a teacher? Makes me sick - oh, there are my emotions going again. People can't live on $35,000 a year - oh, so you say it's their choice to be a teacher and make that income? It's one of the most important jobs out there and doesn't get the respect or income it deserves. Let's keep paying athletes and actors millions for entertaining us while teachers don't even make $50k for shaping the future of our world.

I agree with you. District 122 has great teachers and building principals. I am happy with every person who has ever worked with my children in District 122. They do a very important job and deserve to be fairly paid.
In my opinion the issue is the priorities of our school board members. Reality is: we are in troubled economic times. Every dollar has to be stretched and it should be stretched to preserve and maximize classroom services to our children. When teachers, aides, & reading specialists are losing their jobs; class sizes are inching up (reality numbers not "targets"), increased property taxes and additional fees are getting imposed on our parents; salary perks (not base pay) and fringe benefits should be the first things cut from the budget, not the last. Fair pay for the employees has been addressed in this district and past boards have taken care of what used to be an issue here, but no longer is. The current board needs to deal with current realities and stop living in the past. Most of us live in New Lenox because of the quality education this district has to offer.
Maintaining that quality and keeping bodies in the buildings with our children should be our school board's first priority. Looking at this board's record, it is not.

The people on these threads bashing the district employees are barking up the wrong tree. The responsibility lies with the B.O.E.
This goes for the superintendent also. He gets what he gets because the elected school board allows it. The "buck" stops with them.

Who hires the teachers?
dress code

#16 May 7, 2010
Some of the teachers could dress more professionally. It does set the tone for the classroom, how the students perceive him/her, etc. I saw one in the grade schools dressed in drab olive shorts, black t-shirt and oversized denim jacket, hair a mess in barrett. She looked like a college student late for class all frumpled/overly casual.

If they want respect of parents and students, dress the part please.

This is not all teachers...some dress very nicely. I'm not saying you have to come in a dress or suit, but like my boss in the PRIVATE sector used to say, "if you can wear it to a picnic, don't wear it to work."
Huh

What does that have to do with the board not responding to our current economic crisis? How does this response even begin to address the point that keeping bodies in the buildings for our kid's education is not this board's priority?

Having good staff (less recently, even less to come next year) does not give the board carte-blanche to throw common sense out the window and ignore the plight of the community they are elected to represent! Also, many of our great district employees worked for this district long before the current crew took office!

You are totally sidestepping the issue,(you tend to do that Lansing) although you did type out a full sentence without an insult or obscenity this time. Congratulations.

WHAT about the custodians??? My friend works at one of the schools ONLY because the construction industry is basically in the tank...He caters to about 35 teachers, GOD knows how many aids and staff people, yet he went from $39.00/hour to $12.45...He loves the people there, but I know he's getting the shaft...I hear he has even more duties next year with 0 raise...HOW SWEET FOR HIM..

What about the Sanitation Engineers? They deserve more money too. Then the Lawn Maintence guy? Oh wait, the Mailman too. Hey? I thought the Democrats wanted to "spread the wealth"? We should pay all school employees the same huh? Lets add up "all" the salaries of teachers, aids, workers and divide it by the number of people there. That's the Democratic way right?
