District officials stressed these concessions were made as administrators' workloads are increasing due to the recent elimination of several administrative positions and the addition of new state-mandated evaluation and reporting requirements. The union members will receive an average 1.25 percent salary increase each year of the contract.
Some non-unionized administrators have agreed to concessions, too. Kelsey is taking a salary freeze in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years. Also, Business Administrator Mark Kellet agreed to a 1.5 percent salary increase for 2011-12 and a salary freeze for 2012-13.
"I hope that these efforts and concessions will help Schalmont weather the changing environment and financial pressures schools face today," said Kelsey.""
