TOUGH TIMES IN SHORELINE? NOT FOR ADMINISTRATORS!!
While SESPA employees are asked to make devastating cuts to their work year and cut back on professional development, administrative employees have been busy giving themselves raises.
District documents confirm the following compensation increases:
Superintendent $8,276 or a 4.42% increase
Deputy Superintendent $10,000 or a 7.2% bonus
Superintendent’s Assistant $2169 or a 3.5% increase
Deputy Superintend. Asst. $1517 or a 2.7% increase
HR Executive Asst. $1081 or a 2.07% increase
HR Confidential Specialist $1081 or a 2.07% increase
In addition, the Shoreline District quietly changed the classification system for Professional-Technical employees and upgraded several positions.
Transportation Dispatch Lead added to the salary schedule at $55,918
Student Information System $4,082 or a 7.3% increase
HR Certificated Specialist $4,474 or a 6.5% increase
Public Information Officer $4,474 or a 6.5% increase
Capital Projects Coordinator renamed and given $8504 or a 11.7% increase
Network Manager $12,803 or a 15.76% increase
District administration didn’t want to leave out building and central office administrators from the efforts to improve administrative compensation, so they rolled four (4) supplemental days into the base salary schedule; thereby, pumping up the base salary for future increases.
Meanwhile, Shoreline SESPA employees, an affiliate of the WEA, are being asked to accept cuts of 5-24 work days and professional development pay reduced from $25 per hour to as low as $11 per hour. Over 60 percent of SESPA members do not qualify for experience increments and will have their salaries frozen for five years if SESPA ever accepted the District’s wage offer.
SESPA WILL NOT ACCEPT THIS DOUBLE STANDARD AND NOR SHOULD YOU!!
