base pay for teachers.
By SARAH TOMKINSON
stomkinson@thehawkeye.com
FORT MADISON — The Fort
Madison Education Association
is seeking a 9.3 percent raise
in the base pay for teachers as
it opened this year’s contract
negotiations Monday night.
It would move the base from
$32,250 to $35,250. The school
district has proposed no raise
at all.
Other changes the association is requesting include giving
teachers an additional personal
day, totaling three a year, and
allowing up to six employees in
the middle school to take a personal day on the same day.
The school district is requesting a change to the staff reduction clause, asking the decision
on whom to lay off not rely
solely on seniority. The school
district also wants to base layoffs by department, making
sure the school district does not
lose programs or extracurricular activities.
Negotiations will continue
between the district and the
association. The current contact expires June 30. The contract being discussed is for one
year.
