BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Palm Beach Schools) — All School District of Palm Beach County teachers will receive a 2 percent raise under a tentative agreement reached late Tuesday between the district and the Palm Beach County Classroom Teachers Association.
“We are pleased that we were able to find common ground and provide our teachers a modest increase with the limited funds available this school year,” said School Board Chairman Chuck Shaw. “The School Board is committed to adopting a budget for the upcoming 2015-16 school year that includes a reserve to further improve employee compensation.”
The agreement will be on the School Board’s June 17 agenda for board review and a vote. The district has already reached similar agreements to increase salaries for other district employees, and will work with two remaining groups – the SEIU Florida Public Services Union and the Association for Educational Secretaries and Office Professionals – to provide raises to those employees.
Shaw thanked the district’s negotiating team for their hard work over the past four months. The negotiating team included Mike Burke, Chief Operating Officer; Van Ludy, Director of Labor Relations; Sandra Gero, Chief of Human Resources; Mark Mitchell, Director of Compensation & Employee Information Services; Vicki Evans-Paré, Manager of Labor Relations; Shirley Knox, Manager of Compliance & Special Projects; John Carvelli, Principal, Pierce Hammock Elementary School; Cindy Chiapetta, Principal, Eagles Landing Middle School; and Larry Clawson, Principal, Palm Beach Gardens High School.
