At-will employees to get pay increase
At-will employees of the Stockdale Independent School District (ISD) will see an increase in their pay beginning Jan. 1, 2015. District Superintendent Paul Darilek confirmed this after the March 3 board of trustees meeting.
At-will employees include maintenance, clerical, and food service, Darilek said. This does not affect teachers, counselors, nurses, and librarians; an increase in the teacher pay scale was adjusted last year.
Pay for clerical aides, who received $8.19 per hour, will be increased to $9.75 per hour. The mid-scale pay will increase from $10.15 per hour to $12.18 per hour.
“This is not a raise,” Darilek said, adding that the board adjusted the pay scale to be more competitive with area schools.
In other matters, the trustees canceled the May 10 school board election, due to lack of opposition.
Incumbents Mauro Monita and Teri Wolff each retained their seats for an additional three-year term in District 1 and District 6, respectively.
The trustees also approved the district’s 2014-15 calendar. Monday, Aug. 25, will be the first day of instruction for the next academic year, which will end Thursday, May 28. Graduation is set for Friday, May 29, 2015. This includes a school break the week of March 9-13.
In his report to the board, Darilek advised:
•The new track complex should be complete by March 14, weather permitting. Darilek said a first-ever invitational junior high track meet could be held as a means to show off the track.
•The formation of an education foundation continues, with a fund-raiser being planned for New Year’s Eve. No other details were available.
The agenda for the March 3 meeting was not posted online, a requirement of the Texas Open Meetings Act. School districts that maintain a website also must post the agenda online at the time the meeting is posted.
Darilek said the agenda was posted, as usual, on the district’s external bulletin board outside the administration building. He cited problems with the computer server as a possible reason it was not initially on the website. The agenda later appeared online after the Wilson County News inquired about it.
