The Council Rock School District and the Council Rock Administrators’ Association came to an agreement at the Board meeting Thursday night that will delay a salary increase for the administrators.
“This reflects how our administration wants to help the school district in these difficult financial times,” said Mark Klein, Superintendent.
The agreement delays a pay increase to all administrators until the 13th pay period in the 2012-2013 school year.
Among the items listed in the agreement, CRAA members who qualify, and had provided the Superintendent with a letter of intent to retire before June 30, 2012, will not be affected by the change.
Also, CRAA members who have provided the Superintendent with a letter of intent to retire after June 30, 2012, shall be eligible to receive the 4.75 percent performance based adjustments to his/her base salary retroactive to July 1, 2012 for the 2012-2013 school year.
Members of the CRAA will be allowed to convert up to five unused vacation days to a Tax Sheltered Annuity based on their years of service in Council Rock as an administrator, and their per diem rate of their pay.
“Our administrators came forward to offer a concession to make things better,” said Klein.
This will be the third time in the past four years that the CRAA has made an accommodation in their agreement to defer or change salary terms to help the district.
