Inquiring Minds would ask SEA president, Mr. Maney, What is the problem with the Springboro Taxpayers "fair and balanced" offer<quoted text>
The problem is the way you see it is through the lens of the Tea Party, which bears little resemblance to the changes that the Board is actually making:
FOR TEACHERS SHALL REMAIN AT $34,653. EMPLOYEES SHALL CONTINUE TO RECEIVE THE SAME SALARY THE EMPLOYEE PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED FOR THE 2012-2013 SCHOOL YEAR. THE SALARY SCHEDULE IDENTIFIED BY APPENDIX D OF THE PREVIOUS COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT IS HEREBY NO LONGER IN EFFECT AND SHALL BE CONSIDERED NULL AND VOID.
THE BOARD AND THE ASSOCIATION SHALL EACH APPOINT FIVE (5) MEMBERS TO A COMPENSATION COMMITTEE. THE PURPOSE AND INTENT OF THIS COMPENSATION COMMITTEE SHALL BE TO DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT A TEACHER COMPENSATION STRUCTURE BASED ON PROFESSIONAL TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS. THE BOARD AND THE ASSOCIATION FURTHER AGREE THAT TEACHER COMPENSATION LEVELS SHALL NOT INCREASE UNTIL SUCH TIME THAT THE BOARD AND THE ASSOCIATION, THROUGH THE WORK OF THIS COMMITTEE, DEVELOP, RATIFY AND IMPLEMENT A PROFESSIONAL TEACHING COMPENSATION STRUCTURE BASED ON TEACHER PERFORMANCE AND FISCAL SUSTAINABILITY.
for this great offer of employment in Springboro Schools? Why would any teacher not want to work in their chosen profession in such a safe and comfortable environment, with great wages and benefits? Why is Mr. Maney not willing to "Open Springboro" Schools Doors and embrace this great opportunity for our school community to join with our community as a whole in Supporting Our Success in Springboro?
