OAPSE Contract Extension

At tonight's meeting of the Hilliard Board of Education, the Board voted unanimously to accept an agreement with the members of OAPSE* that will freeze their base pay and step increases for calendar year 2011. During the discussion of the motion, I thanked the OAPSE members for joining the HEA in taking a 'time out' while we all wait to see how our state leaders - whomever they turn out to be - figure out how to deal with the state budget disaster looming before us.

Well done to Superintendent Dale McVey and his team for leading this process.
