Salaries at the King George schools

Teacher salary scale no longer equates to years of experience


The King George School Board has forwarded a budget request to the county that includes 2 percent raises for all school employees, including administrators.


The last time division employees got pay increases was three years ago, in 2008-09, when 4 percent raises were given to all employees.


Salaries have remained level since then, with no raises granted in 2009-10 or for the current budget year, 2010-11.


School Board members like to blame the Board of Supervisors for not providing them with enough funding. But it is significant that the money turned back by the School Board at the end of each of the last two years could have paid for 2 percent raises to at least keep pace with step increases in all the employee salary scales.

Sophomore still recovering at home

Editor’s note: Although this reporter does not typically cover King George local government, The Journal felt it was prudent to attend the Feb. 28 School Board meeting because it provided a window of opportunity for the elected members of the School Board to speak to its constituents on a recent report of school violence experienced by a sophomore that resulted in severe injuries and one student being charged with felony

Brown leaves SB on its own

Superintendent leaves the meeting; School Board goes  into closed session

The King George School Board this week added a closed session to its special budget meeting, which had been called for the sole purpose of discussion of proposals for School Board’s 2011-12 budget request.
The added closed session was “for the purpose of reviewing the investigation of the allegation of harassment by a School Board employee of a parent.”
The School Board had first added that topic to a closed session at last week’s meeting, which already had scheduled a closed session for “personnel.”
