The Superintendent gave the School Committee an update on the status of negotiations with WREA. The Superintendent indicated that he would like to present a new salary schedule to the WREA that would ultimately do away with the Bachelor and Bachelor+15 salary lanes for new and recent hires in order to increase the lower steps to be more competitive in the marketplace. By consensus the Committee agreed.
Chairman Leith returned to the executive session at 10:15 PM
The Superintendent reported on the status of negotiations with the owner of the adjacent land. The Superintendent made a recommendation that the Committee consider alternative revenue sources to purchase the land such as the use of E & D over a time payment schedule. This would enable the architect to maximize the property use. Following discussion, the Committee decided to leave executive session.
Motion: To leave executive session and return to public session.
