Tonight, the Monroe Board of Education approved a 3 year contract with the MEA (Monroe Education Association) for the teachers and classified employees of the Monroe School District.
Under the agreement teachers will receive a 1% increase in year one of the contract and zero % increases for years two and three. Classified employees will receive a 1% increase for each of the three years of the contract.
A new teachers salary schedule was developed by a joint committee comprised of building and central office administrators, teachers and board members. The new salary schedule is projected to save the school district over $93,000 per year. Payroll runs approximately $500,000 per pay period according to School Treasurer Kelley Thorpe.

Here Mike Stanger discusses the contract negotiation process along with School Board Member Brett Guido and Superintendent Libbie Lolli.
WOW the teachers gave sooo much LMAO yeah right, so now they will only get a 3.75% pay raise and no other concessions were giving. Greed at the heart of our schools, good luck on those levies when most tax payers get no raises or reduced in pay. Guess you lower seniority teachers better be saving for the lay off.
In the prior agreement, for instance, teachers would receive a 5.25-percent step increase to their base salary for the first 15 years. That has been altered to a 2.75-percent increase.
Teachers will be placed on the new schedule to receive a 1 percent increase in the first year of the contract, but no base increases in the second and third years of the contract.
