On Thursday, the Arcadia Teachers Association tentatively agreed to a 1.25 percent pay rollback, effective in the new school year. Superintendent Joel Shawn announced the news on a budget discussion blog entry.
Board of Education President Joann Steinmeier said the move would allow the administration to rehire all the probationary and permanent teachers given lay-off notices in March.
Shawn said, however, that some instructors may be reassigned to different schools.
With the Rowland Unified School District facing a massive deficit, perhaps its time for their teachers to consider such an option to save as many positions as possible.
