Gilford teachers will get raises under proposal
Teachers have been working for the past two years on a contract that had no step raises, according to Scott Isabelle, assistant superintendent for business at the school district.
The new three-year contract proposal from the teachers' union and the school district calls for 1.5 percent cost-of-living increases each year, and gives step increases each year as well. The proposal was agreed on by the district and the teachers' association last month.
Significant reductions were made in the health care provisions of the contract, Isabelle said, for a savings of about $156,000.
A large change was made in the health program offerings, he said. The last contract offered three different health plans. The new contract only offers an HMO plan.
Residents will have a chance to discuss the bill at the school district's deliberative session on Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. at Gilford High School.
