Look at your districts contract your board put on your website. 2007-2008 for the first 14 years the raises were 1600 dollars a year. The Buckeye Institute is a conservative think tank. Can't trust those numbers. That's about 70 bucks a check. In 14 years of service why is it unthinkable that an employee can receive a 20,000 dollar raise? I know for a fact some places in the private sector can easily do that. 1350 hours of instruction for Springboro Teachers. You asked about step raises, obviously you don't believe in cost of living so I'm not going to try to convince you on those, it's a mute point.

why is someone from Corona, CA commenting on Springboro teachers financials?

Have the day of your choice.... but don't forget that it is the "union teacher in every child's classroom" that has proclaimed
"give me more of your money and let the little children come unto the government union worker." How arrogant of you to ridicule
"caring parents give them Mountain Dew and Pop Tarts..." while demanding pay increases and more benefits for union teacher who hands out the "graham crackers."
This is clearly an intrusion of the government into the God-Given blessing of relationship between Mom&Dad and their child;
It is not the business of the union teacher to "put asunder what God has joined together; AND it is the God-Given mission of
the church (not the union government employee) to feed the hungry and clothe the naked in the blessed name of Jesus... as beautifully expressed in the words of Psalm 27:10:
Though my father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.

Unions are everywhere.

If you think starting out working for $30.82/hour part time is pathetic, try one of these jobs full time in all kinds of weather every day of the year.
Let me know what you think of your remuneration then.

It's a teacher on vacation in California again !
#24019 Apr 3, 2013
yea, well Springboro doesn't need any advice from the peoples republic of Kalifornia. The bluest of the blue states, California, Illinois and New York all in the crapper and getting worse. Gee I wonder what the common denominator is?
#24020 Apr 3, 2013
Does anyone see post 24014, 24015 or 24016?
They seem to be deleted for some reason, perhaps the truth is inconvenient for some people.

Full Time employment with your numbers
240 days x 8 hours per day = 1920 hours per year
School employee with your numbers
185 days x 7.25 hours per day = 1341.5 hours per year
1341.5 hours for school employee /1920 hours for full time employee=70% of full time hours
40 hours per week vs 28 hours per week (on an annualized basis)

Looks like they got 24021 as well. There is somebody out there who doesn't like the truth or those who do the telling. I saw it this mornng, put it up again and I will copy it and post it myself.

You forgot to take out the paid lunches, I don't know of anybody who gets paid to eat lunch.
185 days x .5 hrs for lunch equals 92.5 hrs
1341.5 hrs per year - 92.5 hrs equals 1249 hrs
1249 hrs for teachers/1920 hrs for private sector full time employee equals 65% of the hrs of a private sector full time employee.
40 hrs/week in the private sector vs. 26 hrs/week in the school system, also annualized

This is how much a teacher in the Springboro School District actually makes per hour.
$36,500 +$5110 the taxpayer picks up for your retirement fund /1350 hours =$30.82/hour
$48,000 +$6720 the taxpayer picks up for your retirement fund/1350 hours =$40.53/hour
$60,000 +$8400 the taxpayer picks up for your retirement fund/1350 hours =$50.66/hour
$75,000 +$10,500 the taxpayer picks up for your retirement fund/1350 hours =$63.33/hour

Such a deal.

Funny, this is from CA. So now we have people from California here?
Wow how do we rank that?
#24029 Apr 4, 2013
Mu husband and I work 10 hours per day and lunch is not a part of that 10 hours. We are salaried also.
#24030 Apr 4, 2013
So are you saying that Dayton Daily is removing some posts just because they do not like the truth here?

I have a concern for the children that are struggling. I have a child on an IEP that has slipped through the testing cracks which left him non-eligible for services. Example: reading intervention: he tests great one on one after intervention and is borderline but since he is doing well and the slots are full he gets pulled. Later he was observed and noted that he was receiving services because he needed them and I politely reminded them that they tested him out and he had fallen behind again. It seems from observatiin that the classroom aides and intervention is spread very thin. I don't understand how it is possible to start an expensive program for "gifted" students excelling and leave behind the ones who are falling behind. I have also heard parents say directly that their gifted student needs to be with others like them and not separated. Sounds like discrimination to me.

Finding ways to methodically advance student achievement should always be everyone’s goal. Implementing academic reforms will, for example, reduce the present need for so many of our students needing to take college remediation courses. This, of course, will immediately translate into money saved for parents whose students attend Ohio’s colleges. And, in order to meet this challenge of higher academic quality, the current school Board of Education and District are, or already have plans to, invest heavily in technology, professional development for teachers, new textbooks, as well as new computers for every teacher, plus much more.
All this being said, there is a lot of work yet to be done to assure you (parents) that we will strive to do more than meet the minimum state requirements. The current Board of Education is dedicated to being advocates for every student striving to push the bar higher than other districts.
Some say there’s no need to change because our district achieved an “excellent with Distinction” rating for our most recent school year. But we live in a world that is dynamic, a world of ever-evolving expectations and realities that require our constant attention. What once was an acceptable level of achievement is now a relic of the past that will ill serve our children and our taxpayers in the future.
As parents, we all desire that our children be provided the best we can afford. We constantly challenge our children with the hope that doing so will help prepare them for the world and better lives than we ourselves enjoy. We are also highly cognizant of the importance of true learning and greatly value education and the promise of what it may bring.
Everyone in the school community has more in common than they have differences. Let us meld that commonality to push forth a better school system than we enjoy today. We owe it to our children. Let us come together to push for real achievement and higher standards than we currently demand.

You forgot to include the hours spent at home grading papers until the late hours of the evening, the time spent running to various stores purchasing enhancement materials for the classroom at their own expense, time spent on the weekend grading papers and spending time in their classroom preparing for the next weeks' lessons.
#24034 Apr 8, 2013
You forgot to tell the truth...stop spreading lies trying to make yourself look like a victim held captive in our classrooms.
Teachers are not required to pay for classroom materials; there's a budget for all requested classroom resources for our students; and Springboro parents are weary of hearing teachers whine and complain throughout the community about the drudgery of
being employed in our great schools.
