More Money For Teachers, RTA Approve Three Year Contract
Written by Tariq on January 4, 2023
The Rochester Teachers Association approved a contract for the next three years. The District School Board voted 7-0 in favor of it. The contract will give an annual 3.8% salary increase and a recruitment and a retention incentive of $1,500 to teachers. It also provides increased hourly compensation for professional development and curriculum development time to afford growth, support, and consistency across the District. Reinforce the commitment that teachers will regularly communicate with parents, including the use of District electronic communication. Collaborative planning time connects to school improvement plans and District-identified priorities, and that instruction reflects differentiated learning and culturally responsive practices. Special education teachers will be afforded additional time to focus on individual student case management and quality IEPs. Click Here To Read More.
