Beaver schools last day is June 7

Published: Fri, May 13, 2011 @ 6:07 a.m.


There is an error in the calendar of events section of the summer edition of the “Beaver Local Schools Around the District” that was mailed to school district residents.

The last day of school for students is June 7. June 8 is a teacher workday.

...and June 8 to Sept is off with pay. ...and at the age of 52 it is full retirement with $60k pay. ...and our property taxes keep increasing while the school board runs yet another levy. Since teachers get paid every summer, how about they work tutoring, providing daycare, & being productive to earn their checks? How about them working to a retirement age before retirement? And how about them receiving social security like the rest of us instead of 80% of their last year's pay (paid by our taxes)?

Way to go, "db". That sums it all up.

Oh yeah, lets say "average" for a tenured teacher is about $40K. Not bad for not working 2-1/2 to 3 mos. Anybody out there in this valley (median income @ $26K) who works 12 mos a year willing to trade any one of them? But if they teach all summer, they'd want a RAISE.

Talk about "chutzpah".

'db' - I am pretty sure your points are both inaccurate and not relevant to this article.

Having said that, teachers in fact only get paid for the months in which they work, and CHOOSE to have their pay spread out over those months, or the entire year. Most choose to have it spread out over the entire year because, well, that is most logical if they do not have a second job. So, if they WERE to take up another job in the summer, it should be PAID, since they are only getting a paycheck by CHOICE of having it disbursed in such a manner.

Also, the teachers, who are public employees, also pay those taxes.

Also, for having a 4 year degree or higher, starting pay for educators is relatively low, under $30,000 in this area.

So many jagoffs in this area. Who cares when the school year ends? I mean, they have off every day from December to February due to snow.

actually teachers are considered 9 or 10 month employees and are not paid in the summer. teachers can opt to get paid in the summer by receiving less of their pay each check throughout the school year. so therefore, teachers are NOT paid in the summer, unless they budget themselves throughout the other 9-10 months.
and geez with all the cuts and lay offs kasich has done to this state you would think people would start to lay off education, but i guess apparently when you have simple-minded mentally challenged citizens like db in this state, education will always be on the chopping block. great attitude db, im sorry your education failed you, but i assure you that its not failing others.

this same old debate is getting tiresome...teachers don't get paid for not working but some opt to stretch their paychecks through the summer. what that means is they make less money during the school year so that they can receive some type of income in the summer months. It is optional by the way, some teachers do only get paid for nine months. Please tell me that you realize teachers have bachelors and master degrees from college as well as many additional hours towards keeping their licensure. Tell me what company pays someone 30 k for a masters degree? When school gets cancelled it is to keep our children safe, it has nothing to do with teachers...get a clue
