PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (February 28, 2013)—The Calvert County Board of Education and the Calvert Association of Supervisors and Administrators (CASA) announced today that they have reached a tentative agreement on the second and third years of their employment contract.
Under the tentative agreement reached on February 25, administrators and supervisors will receive a 1% pensionable salary adjustment, which will not be incorporated into their base, for Fiscal Year 2013. For Fiscal Year 2014, employees in this bargaining unit will be repositioned on a new salary scale, will receive a one-step increase, and will receive a 1% cost of living adjustment. Bargaining unit members at the top of their salary scales who are not eligible for a step increase on the new scale will receive a 1.5% salary adjustment for next school year.
Other changes in the tentative agreement include: an increased ability to telecommute, the addition of a probationary period for all newly hired administrators, the establishment of a joint committee to clarify the responsibilities for training, mentoring and the evaluation process for new administrators, the establishment of a joint committee to study issues related to flexible work hours, and payment for extra work related to state curricular and evaluation changes in Fiscal Year 2013.
CASA and the Board of Education must now ratify the tentative contract.
