School board approves deal with administrators, supervisors

May 19, 2005|by KAREN HANNA

The Washington County Board of Education on Tuesday night unanimously accepted a one-year deal with the county schools' administrators and supervisors that will cost nearly $400,000 more than this year's agreement.

According to Deidre Shumaker, chairperson of the group that represents about 125 school administrators and supervisors, the agreement replaces a one-year deal that expires June 30.

The group includes principals and directors who all report to Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan, Shumaker said.

Shumaker, who plans to share details of the agreement with the group's membership Thursday, declined comment on the specifics of the new deal.

William Blum, the school system's chief operating officer, said the agreement includes a 3 percent raise with step increases and more vacation time for administrators according to their length of service. According to Blum, the agreement will cost the schools $398,000 more next year than the current deal.

Board member Roxanne Ober said she supported the agreement, but is "very concerned that we haven't gone far enough." Ober said she believes the school system should do more to recruit and attract administrators.
