CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- The Chappaqua Central School District and its Board of Education unanimously ratified a new Memorandum of Agreement with the Chappaqua Administrators' Association for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years.
The Board of Education approved the agreement at Wednesday night’s March 20 public meeting.
Key elements of the ratified Memorandum of Agreement:
- Salary increases : The salary for administrators will increase by 1.7 percent for each year of the agreement.
- Health insurance contribution increases : Health insurance premium contributions will rise from the current rate of 15 percent to 16 percent for 2013-14, and to 17.5 percent for 2014-15.
- Longevity and tenure stipend change : An annual physical examination reimbursement amount of $400 will be shifted to the longevity and tenure stipend.
“Arriving at this agreement was a very fluid process,” said Lyn McKay, Superintendent of Chappaqua Schools. “The administrators worked hand-in-hand with the bargaining team, and in these difficult financial times, our administrators understood that they could be a part of the solution.”
The agreement is similar to the one recently ratified by the teacher’s union on Feb. 27 , in both its salary increases and its health insurance premium contribution increases.
