GPS School Board Mtg – Tuesday, April 26, 2011 @ 7pm located at the GPS District Offices, 140 S. Gilbert Rd, Gilbert.
Features in this meeting include: Teacher pay for performance details. What is this? For those who were around for Gov. Hull’s efforts to bring more dollars into the classroom by increasing sales tax back in 2001, you may remember it as “Isn’t your child worth half a cent”, or Classroom Site Fund, or Prop 301. Of course, “Isn’t your child worth half a cent” was recently reused in Prop 100 last year, but who’s counting?
Teacher Salary, Support Staff Salary Schedules, and other staff salary schedules are included. Teachers will not be receiving any increase in pay this year. This is the bad news to teachers. Of course, the good news is that there are also no reductions or furloughs as has been the case in other districts.
