FYI

At the July 17th Board of Education meeting, Mina Griffith, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services, presented a proposal to the Board to increase the nurses’ salaries in response to staffing issues over the past four years. In that time 15 nurses and 9 permanent sub nurses have left the district. From exit surveys, a majority of those who left reported that it was due to pay being much less than surrounding districts. PASS only became aware of this proposal after the BOE meeting via email to our president.

After several discussions, on August 1st, PASS entered into a memorandum of understanding that defines the increase in salary for the nurses.  This is pending final approval of the Board of Education at the August 21st meeting.

Please see the MOU below for more information.
