Counselor Contract Request

Agenda Section: Action
Action Choices: Action
Additional Information: Mr. Dunn and the Board of Trustees, I would like to recommend that the counselors in the school district increase their contract from 5 extra days to 20 extra days each year. The counselors in our district are compensated on the same pay scale as a teacher but are required to hold a master's degree. Each of the counselors are taking out loans ranging from $25,000-$30,000 dollars. Each of our counselors are able to take positions outside of a school setting and earn nearly double their current compensation. The request would increase each counselors salary approximately $3,000.00 each. This will go a long way in helping them to repay their loans and keeping the good counselors that we have working and serving our students. The counselors are doing and accomplishing great things and making a difference in the lives of students. Thanks, Jared Jenks
