School board to consider yard duty pay raise

Posted: Friday, Apr 11th, 2014

CRESTON The Atascadero Unified School District board of trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to table a portion of a resolution that would have provided a 50 cent per hour raise for yard duty supervisors after trustee George Galvan protested, saying he would like to see the part-time employees receive a larger raise.

The salary schedule for yard duty supervisors currently starts at $8.50 per hour with yearly 50-cent raises topping out at $10.50 per hour. The proposal would have made the starting salary $9.50 per hour and consistent with the new minimum wage going into effect this July, but Galvan said he would rather see the schedule start at $10 per hour.

I think to pay somebody that kind of money to care for your children is just not very much, he said. I just dont think that $9 is much of a raise. I cant vote for this unless you decide to come up with more money and I dont want to hear this were broke. Were not that broke. Im sure youre going to tell me that we dont have any money, but we do. Im against just raising it a dollar.
