Great things are happening in our district! On Monday, August 12th at the Board of Trustees meeting, school board members voted in favor of educators on two accounts.
The first resolution guarantees the support of the board in the New Albany Floyd County Education Association efforts to create change at the state level.
The second resolution relates to our districts teacher salaries. In an effort to increase teachers’ salaries, the House Enrolled Act 1001 was passed by lawmakers at the 2019 Indiana General Assembly. Governor Eric Holcomb called for these savings to be used towards teachers’ salaries. In NAFCS case, the total was $712,158. On August 12th, board members made the commitment to use those funds for that purpose. Bargaining sessions have not yet been discussed.
