Compensation Committees

Support Staff Wage Schedule
This past February, the Governing Board approved a 2% increase in compensation for teachers and support staff for SY2019 fiscal year. Additionally, the State, Governor, and Legislation provided additional state funding for teacher salary increases. As we worked through the process on how we would pay out the additional state monies to teachers, LESD teachers and the Governing Board approved the use of additional monies towards support staff compensation.

The purpose of this Classified Wage Schedule Committee was to propose and evaluate options for utilizing the additional funds reserved for classified staff with adjustments to the Classified Wage Schedule. District administration requested volunteers to serve and worked to ensure that all schools and departments were represented on the committee. Not only did committee members participate in discussions, they will also gathered feedback from their fellow support staff employees.

The turnaround for the committee work was fairly quick. The committee met on the following dates from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Certified Staff Salary
The district sought out volunteers to participate on a May/June budget committee to inform the district administration’s recommendation to the Governing Board regarding utilization of funds for teacher salary and other maintenance and operations budget adjustments for the 2018-2019 school year. The committee included representation of the range of teachers, classified staff, and administration in the district. Other stakeholders representing the community also participated in the committee work. The primary objective was to inform budget decisions on new funding designated for teacher salaries, and secondary objective, as time permitted, was to inform the use of new funding designated for restored district additional assistance (capital). 

The turnaround for the committee work was fairly quick as the Governing Board approved the SY2018 budget on June 18th. The committee met on the following dates from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
