Cadott School Board; Teacher compensation plan denied
After months of meetings, the Cadott compensation committee of teachers, staff and administration proposed a plan in April, to retain and attract teachers to the district. In the new plan, a teacher’s minimum wage started at $40,762, and each year would increase by $1,000 or more, depending on the level of experience and impact to the district.
At the May 8 regular Cadott School Board meeting, the board turned down the proposal for the 2017-18 school year, saying the plan wasn’t “sustainable,” but brought forward a contract with some changes.
“We discussed three or more different plans,” said Damon Smith, district administrator, at the May 8 meeting. “This was one, because we have to go forward with your contracts, that we wanted to present something to you that was acceptable.”
