Compensation Agreements Reached for All Employees

Compensation Agreements Reached for All Employees

The School Board of St. Lucie County and all bargaining units have reached agreements regarding salary compensation for the 2018-2019 school year.

Returning CTA employees will receive an $850 retention supplement.  Their retro portion of this $850 (representing 7/1/18 through current) will be distributed by 12/19/18 and should equal approximately half of the negotiated supplement amount.  The remaining negotiated supplement balance will be paid in equal installments over the remaining paychecks for 2018-2019.

All CU employees will receive a $250 bonus by 12/19/18.  In addition, returning employees will receive a supplement in the amount equivalent to their step within the salary schedule. Their retro payment for this negotiated supplement will be distributed by 12/19/18.  This retro payment will represent 7/1/18 through current and should equal approximately half of the negotiated supplement amount.  The remaining negotiated supplement balance will be paid in equal installments over the remaining paychecks for 2018-2019.

All CWA employees will receive a $250 bonus by 12/19/18.  In addition, returning employees will receive a supplement in the amount equivalent to their step within the salary schedule.  Their retro payment for this negotiated supplement will be distributed by 1/15/19. (This timeline is due to the extended negotiations for the CWA bargaining unit.)  This retro payment will represent 7/1/18 through current and should equal approximately half of the negotiated supplement amount.  The remaining negotiated supplement balance will be paid in equal installments over the remaining paychecks for 2018-2019.

The supplement negotiated with the CWA is subject to ratification and School Board approval and, as with all negotiated agreements, is non-recurring unless future funding allows for them to become permanent salary increases. Unlike a bonus, supplements are treated as income and count toward retirement.

Superintendent E. Wayne Gent stated, “The District, the CTA/CU and CWA have all worked together over the last several months to get the most out of exhausted funding options stretched thin by legislative shortfalls and unfunded mandates. Salaries fall short of where we’d like them to be, and we’re committed to finding ways to increase compensation for all employees.”

Compensation Agreement Reached

Compensation Agreement Reached

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL — It is no secret that the Florida Legislature did not provide adequate funding this year for Florida’s public schools. The St. Lucie CTA/CU and the District have worked together to get the most out of exhausted funding options stretched thin by legislative shortfalls and unfunded mandates. Both parties agree that educator salaries fall short of where we’d like them to be and are committed to finding ways to increase compensation for all employees.

For the 2018-2019 school year, all eligible teachers will receive a Retention Supplement of $850.00.  In addition, $500.00 will be added to the base amounts used to calculate supplements.  Eligible CU employees will receive a supplement in the amount equivalent to their step within the salary schedule and an additional $250 bonus.

The negotiated supplements for CTA and CU will count toward FRS contributions. They are non-recurring unless future funding allows for them to become permanent salary increases.  This agreement is also subject to School Board approval and Union ratification.

Superintendent E. Wayne Gent said, “As our rising academic trends have shown, we have a team of talented educators on board who can continue supporting our students’ historic growth.  We did the best we could in this lean year.  However, Martin, Palm Beach, and numerous other districts have recently passed voter approved referendums to pay their teachers significantly more than St. Lucie County. We, too, must explore these options to preserve our continued growth and not jeopardize our students’ success by losing our best and brightest educators to other districts across the state with more attractive compensation.”

St. Lucie CTA/CU president E. David Freeland said, “While this is certainly not the kind of compensation package we want to bring to our members, it reflects the reality of a Florida Legislature that continues to undervalue students and educators in the state.  We look forward to working with the School District to explore other local means of funding our schools and covering shortfalls created by the Florida Legislature.”

Community Supports Celebrate Literacy Week

Community Supports Celebrate Literacy Week

ST. LUCIE COUNTY – Literacy efforts continue to grow through collaborative support with community members. In classrooms throughout SLPS, business and civic leaders read to students and participated in literacy events as part of the Celebrate Literacy Week.

 

“Parents, business leaders, neighbors, and mentors play a crucial role in helping children learn to read and foster the lifelong love of reading,” said Mandy Rowland, literacy curriculum specialist for the District. “Schools welcomed volunteers to support as participants in literacy night events, read-a-thons, vocabulary parades, and guest readers.  Beyond Celebrate Literacy Week, we invite our volunteers to stay connected throughout the entire year. Working together as a community, we can have a greater impact on helping every student read at or above grade level.”

 

As an example of Literacy Week activities, students at White City Elementary (WCE) participated in a “Read-a-Thon,” and community members poured into classrooms for “Guest Reader Day.”  Special guests included: Mayor Linda Hudson, Sheriff Ken Mascara, Superintendent E. Wayne Gent, Port St. Lucie Police officers, and Fire Department officials.  Each read a heartwarming book about showing kindness entitled, Have You Filled Your Bucket Today? To foster the love of reading, staff members distributed “I Was Caught Reading” coupons along with special books and prizes.  Throughout the week, staff and students alike always had a book close at hand awaiting the surprise announcement for — DEAR (Drop Everything and Read), and the culminating event occurred for all of WCE families with Literacy Night.  Attendees enjoyed an evening that included two Readers Theater plays: The Three Little Pigs and 12 Angry Pigs.

Community Comes Together for Southport Middle School Career Fair

Community Comes Together for Southport Middle School Career Fair

The Southport Middle School Guidance Department held a Career Fair for our seventh and eighth grade students to support them in career exploration. The event tied into the Naviance classroom lessons that counselors facilitate, which promotes career awareness and helps students develop a deeper understanding of their talents, skills, and personality traits.
The community really came through for this event, with professionals from a wide variety of careers for students to meet and greet. Professionals were set up in a job fair style so students could move around and explore careers that may interest them, ask questions, and gather information. Each of the professionals set up displays with general information about their careers, the qualifications required, the job duties for the featured career.
Many invited students to experience their careers hands-on with drawing activities, social-emotional ice breakers, computer games, microscopic experiments, interactive body models, and medical devices. Even animals, including a police K9 and infant kittens in need of care were in attendance. The professionals also provided brochures and handouts for students to take home, review and share with their parents.
Students concluded their visits by completing a reflection questionnaire on the career/profession of most interest and the action steps they would need to take in order to pursue that career. The media center also supported efforts  by displaying an assortment of career related books for students to check out and research career choices further.It was a great event that we plan to continue year after year.
We are thankful to the business and service professionals throughout St. Lucie County that include:
DeVonica Vaught-Heath Information Technology
Jessica Fulton-Pharmacy Technician
Pamela Giannone-Medical Assisting
Guilene Napoleon-Auguste, Melissa Nazario & Evette Louhisdon-Social Workers

COMMITMENT TO TECHNICAL AND MECHANICAL TRAINING ENHANCES SAFETY

COMMITMENT TO TECHNICAL AND MECHANICAL TRAINING ENHANCES SAFETY

St. Lucie Public Schools mechanics were among 106 who gathered from 34 of Florida’s school districts to successfully complete an intensive four-day training held in Daytona Beach last week. Training was provided by professional instructors from Cummins, Allison, Stemco, NAPA, Braun, Ricon, and the three major school bus suppliers in Florida. Trainers from IC, Blue Bird and Thomas Built Buses captivated the technicians and afforded them hours of hands on diagnostic and repair training in the latest techniques for maintaining and repairing school buses.

A recent trend in many school districts is the addition of air conditioning on school buses. Trans/Air, RAC and MCC, major air condition manufacturers, all offered classes in these specialized systems.

In addition to attending the class, many technicians remained during after class hours to sit for on-line examinations to be certified as Vehicle Service Technicians or the coveted Master Repair Technician. Twenty-seven technicians are now FAPT Certified Master Repair Technicians and 11 are certified as Vehicle Service Technicians. One additional technician passed the examination to be certified as a Parts Service Technician.

Robert Manspeaker, the Director of Student Transportation Management Services (STMS) with the Florida Department of Education said, “The dedication to students, work ethic and sincere efforts to provide the highest-level safety possible is evident right here in this room with the commitment of you men and women.”

In its 29th year of being offered, this training continues to be the result of many hours of hard work by the Volusia District Transportation team and the Florida Association for Pupil Transportation Committee on Bus Qualifications and Standards. During this four-day workshop, an additional 60 plus technicians from around the state passed their School Bus Safety Inspector hands on test under Mr. Manspeaker and his staff who assisted in the testing. This will help alleviate the severe shortage of qualified bus safety inspectors required to certify every 30 days that the bus meets all safety requirements.

Commissioner’s Academic Challenge

Commissioner’s Academic Challenge

In a competitive academic competition, local high school teams competed for top honors and individual team members vied for a seat on the prestigious Team St. Lucie – an elite six-member team that represented St. Lucie Public Schools at the 34th Annual Commissioner’s Academic Challenge.

Maria Battaglino Hernandez, Madeleine Sosa, Callie Zheng (Lincoln Park Academy); Ryan Lu (Treasure Coast High School); Alan Senkus (St. Lucie West Centennial); and Matthew Zoll (Fort Pierce Westwood) accumulated an impressive number of individual points in this year’s local tournament to secure a seat on Team St. Lucie.  SLPS teacher Paige McMahon served as coach for the team, preparing the students for the State Competition.

The state competition took place April 11-13, 2019 at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, and Team St. Lucie advanced to the Division 2 Finals and ended up finishing 5th in the state!

Teams from across Florida gathered for this state-wide tournament in which challenging questions were posed to players in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, the fine arts, world languages (French and Spanish), physical education, health, and technology. As with the local competition, players competed for their team’s top score as well as their individual score in hopes of being selected as a member of Florida’s team for the national competition.  The questions were written by educators from high schools throughout the state.

Commander’s Award for Civilian Service at FPWHS

Commander’s Award for Civilian Service at FPWHS

A tremendous honor was recently bestowed on our very own Fort Pierce Westwood High School Principal Mr. Joseph Lezeau.

Last week during the high school’s JROTC Awards Ceremony, an impressive number of cadets earned awards for high academic accomplishments and were recognized for their citizenship, leadership, and community service.  At the close of the ceremony, CSM Frederico Dottin presented Mr. Lezeau with the Commander’s Award for Civilian Service.

The Commander’s Award for Civilian Service is an honorary award presented by the United States Department of the Army to civilian employees for commendable service or achievement. The Commander’s Award for Civilian Service is comparable to the military Army Commendation Medal.

In recognition of Mr. Lezeau’s commitment to a positive school culture, his public support of the JROTC program, and as an honored recipient of this award, he was recognized at the April School Board Meeting.
