[quote comment=”91852″][quote comment=”91838″][quote comment=”91537″]When teachers are laid off, a strict pecking order is followed as per the district contract. Untenured teachers go first and those tend to be the teachers at the bottom of the payscale, not the top. I think young lower-salaried teachers were let go and not experienced teachers at the top of the pay scale.

I trust Hoboken South will offer his/her valuable insight. Thanks for joining the conversation, HS.[/quote]

Hello Anyday,

I am sorry I took so long for a response..On Vay Cay. Anyway, As per contract you are right. The non-tenured teachers are the first to go, and the older teachers with higher salaries are always safe…Go Figure. The tenure system is flawed on many levels.
In regards to the HS english teacher, one teacher was promoted to Supervisor of Humanaties, and the three that were laid off took other jobs with other districts and the HBOE was not able to get them back.[/quote]
********
HS maybe you will know this. Will the newly promoted Supervisor still have a teaching load? Are they Supervising just at the HHS or for the whole district?[/quote]

From what I know, they will not be teaching any classes.

And from my understanding, they won’t be teaching (a previous poster – plaintruthiness – confirmed this when he/she gave a recap of minutillo’s comments). Remember, they wouldn’t need to hire a teacher to replace someone who is promoted into the make-work job of supervisor if that… Read more »

It should be noted that these two supervisor positions are NEWLY created positions. So the district is not necessarily saving $92K (plus bennies) by combining Math & Science, and $90K for the Humanities. The board spent over $200K here in additional funds for make work jobs, and then tried make themselves look good by declaring to the public that they “saved” two teaching slots. If supervisors actually teach in the classroom, I don’t think they would have needed two replacement teachers.

Note that it was the Kids First coalition that voted NO for these unnecessary and costly sup positions. The voters got their just desserts.
