I’m writing to bring to light the disparity between the Bethel School District employees and the managers, assistant managers, head of facilities, etc.
We classified employees – custodial, food service, maintenance workers, para-educators – were all cut way back due to a shortage of money. We have not gotten one cost-of-living increase in five years, we have not gotten one penny of a raise. In fact, lots of people lost their jobs, and 220-day people were cut back to 180 days. We now have a huge workload.
We just learned that the managers each got an additional 10 days vacation! I guess they thought the peons wouldn’t find out. We know where to dig into the board minutes; it’s public information!
