  Teachers’ Union, School Board Reach Agreement On 3-Year Pact With No Wage Increase  
  July 16, 2020 Edition  
     The Boardman Board of Education unanimously approved a 3-year contract with the Boardman Education Association at its regular monthly meeting in June.
      The new contract took effect on July 1 and runs through June 30, 2023. It includes no pay raise for the teaching staff. Healthcare premiums will remain unchanged.
      According to the Cupp Report, the annual teacher’s salary in the Boardman Local Schools is $59,332.
      “The value of a teacher was never more evident than what we experienced these last months of the 2019-20 school year. If there was ever a time that they should be rewarded it is these current times. However, the financial state of our district, community, state and country just does not allow it at this time,” said Supt. Tim Saxton., adding “I respect the fact that our employees understand this reality and we were able to work together to complete a collective bargaining agreement that addresses change, but balances the financial health of the district.”
      The Boardman Education Association ratified the agreement at the end of May. Approximately 300 teachers comprise the Boardman Education Association.
      “Our teachers realize the hardships the pandemic has caused for all school districts and our priority will always be to provide the best education possible for our students,” said Boardman Education Association President Bill Amendol.
      Supt. Saxton said the new agreement has minor changes, such as updating language to match changes in Ohio Revised Code or federal law (Family Medical Leave Act, Janus ruling, etc).
      Notable changes, according to the superintendent include:
       •300 sick days (up from 280 days from the prior contract). Note---state law mandates accumulating 15 sick days per year for employees. It would take 20 years of perfect attendance to reach 300 sick days.
       •Raises the compensation from $20 to $25 when a teacher covers another teacher’s class instead of using a substitute teacher.
       •There is no additional cost to the district since it is a 0% base salary increase.
