EXHIBIT D

BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING

October 5, 2009

 


ISSUE:           Teacher Quality Agreement with Education Association

 

FOR:              Action

 

CONTACT:  Superintendent Dale Monroe

 

 


Background

Governor Culver passed legislation to increase teacher salary for two years across the state and the Teacher Quality Bill was the result. 

 

As required by the new Teacher Quality Legislation, an allocation was made to the district to be negotiated between the Association and the District with the actual payment amount to each teacher.  The definition of teacher is to include the nurses with professional recognition, librarians and counselors.  We are allowed to remove FICA and IPERS from the basic allocation. 

 

We have to determine how it would be divided among staff.  The Association and I reached an agreement last year that it would be divided among all staff including first and second year teachers.   The approximate allocation per FTE is $4,605.56.  These funds will be distributed over eleven months beginning on October 18, 2009. 

 

The legislation also requested the Board establish a Teacher Quality Committee made up of equal numbers of Anamosa Education Association members and Administrators.  As per state law, members of the Teacher Quality Committee include:

Cynthia Warner

Ann Tiedt

Mary Bendixen

Dale Monroe

 

Recommendation

“Approve the agreement with the Anamosa Association for Teacher Quality Pay and approve the members of the Teacher Quality Committee.”
