Teachers, school board agree to two-year deal

By Carol McIntire

The Carrollton Board of Education and Carrollton Education Association (CEA) have agreed to a new two-year contract.

Carrollton Schools superintendent Dr. David Quattrochi said the new contract does not grant teachers a pay increase in either year. However, teachers in years 1-13 who are eligible for step increases based on years of service and education will receive those increases. Teachers who have more than 13 years of service each received a $600 bonus.

All teachers are now on the same insurance plan. Teachers will pay $100 per month for family insurance coverage and $50 for single coverage. Previously, new hires paid $50 for family coverage and $25 for single coverage. Teachers who were already employed by the district did not pay anything for insurance coverage.

Quattrochi noted there is also an increase in mail order prescription cost and drug co-payments.

“I am happy the teachers were willing to work with us on this contract during this financial transition period,” Quattrochi stated. “There are some exciting times coming up for us to take advantage of and I greatly appreciate the teachers accepting a 0-0 increase contract for the next two years.”

The contract runs from Aug. 31, 2013 though June 30, 2015. Members of the CEA approved the contract Feb. 16 by a vote of 61-5.
