ATLANTIC SCHOOL BOARD AND TEACHERS ASSOCIATION TO MEET IN CLOSED SESSION REGARDING CONTRACT PROPOSAL
(Atlantic) The Atlantic School Board turned down the Education Association’s offer for a 7-percent base salary increase for 2011-2012 school year. The next move is to meet in closed session next month.
Atlantic Schools Superintendent Dr. Michael Amstein stated in a phone conversation Wednesday that it makes it difficult to come up with a counter offer because they don’t have all of the information needed about health insurance.
The 7-percent salary increase that the teachers are asking for represents a $2,150 increase on base salaries for teachers. The teacher’s proposal also included; changes in the language for teacher hours, personal leave days, staff reduction, procedures, special contracts, and supplemental pay and health insurance.
The two sides will meet behind closed doors on February 9.
