2011-2012 teacher salary
think about it

Today the school board voted to amend the burg teachers salaries for 2011-2012 school year to a 10 percent increase per year of service topping out at 200 k a year. This raise will make 73 percent of burg teachers salaries at the maximum of 200 k per year. This raise in salaries will be funded by property tax code 3456.32 of the Ohio Revised code stating school boards can triple property taxes over the a period 3 years, in the event a school levy has been defeated two consecutive times.
This increase in wages will make burg school teachers salaries equal to only very elite private schools in Manhatten, Ny and Beverly Hills, Ca. The cost of this increase in pay will have a hard impact on an already difficult economy. Average yearly taxes on private property will increase from $1150 per year to $3450 per year. Business property Taxes will go from average of $4100 per year to $12,300 per year.
This change will go into effect on June 10th, 2011....What does anyone think about this raise?

I appreciate all the teachers for the work they do, but this pay raise is in my opinion Ridiculous! I work 40+ hours a week 12 months a year to maintain my property in Wheelersburg, if my property taxes triple I am not going to be able to afford to live here any longer. Again, Wow this is Rediculous!!

Ignore this people. This is not true. I doubt anyone would believe it anyway but just incase. The poster is disgruntled and trying to stir up something in response to another thread regarding the head janitor's salary at Wheelersburg. You
will find this under the thread "Darren P".

it's a good thing the timing of this thread was all wrong. apparently, someone didnt check their calendar to see when school board meetings are held. otherwise, people may have started believing it.

Im a student at burg and on the school council. I guess this was a kinda hush hush private meeting. I guess all the teachers knew at about 2 pm Thursday that the measure was passed. I thought something was up when a person announced over the loud speaker that measure 10 p was approved. Thats why all the teachers went in the hall yesterday and hugged each other, and were in a great mood. It all makes sense now...Good for them !!!!

I highly doubt that they are doubling anyone's salaries. This website tells you what everyones salary is in the state of Ohio.

Im the one who started this topic , and AND YES ITS COMPLETE BS..and I made both post "think about it and jennifer" I said last week in the Darren P topic that I would post this and prove a point. The first person to respond on here believed it, and if "not true" wouldve just sat back and watched then I bet we would have alot of believers. The point is people dont believe everything you see.....Remember the old saying people..Believe Half of what you see, and none of what you hear !!!

That's true a well put together lie can fool a lot of people, especially on topix. However, I think the Darren P thread has more to it. The people starting it were not trying to lie and cause drama, they said what they were told. Could the argument be made that they were just lied to or misinformed with the information that they received? Of course the argument could be made. But I'll say this and be done--my husband is a teacher at Wheelersburg and has been for several years. He himself told me that you know who has a salary around 90k a year. I've also heard that from a few other reliable sources way before I even saw it on here. I think it is pretty far fetched to think that it is just coincidence that several people say this. Why would a bunch of good people just make something like this up? A person close to Darren's wife said this.

Good for Darren, I know he deserves it, plainly because he puts up with a lot of crap from the teachers.They can't do anything for themselves!

And they put up with crap from him. I was even curious what he made. That 90k a year rumor goes back two years ago. Don't know how or why it started but I was to where I almost believed it. I knew what the website said but people tried saying he was paid through a second source that wasn't on the site. I don't care if he does or not anymore.
