An innovative school year calendar this July will add additional full days of instruction to the school year at the Arcola and Roscoe Nix elementary schools in Montgomery County, benefitting student learning. But Montgomery County Education Association building reps in these schools who negotiated additional pay for the teachers just found out that administrators in the schools will be getting five times the pay. “In this case, our employer has demonstrated to our colleagues at Arcola and Roscoe Nix that they are worth less than other employees in the building,” says MCEA president Christopher Lloyd on a petition the union will deliver to Dr. Jack Smith, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent. “MCPS balanced the budget for the Innovative School Year program on the backs of teachers,” Lloyd said.
