Hebron Dollars & Sense

Read the Marlborough's Superintendent's annual report on their school's web-site. Through 2010-2011 ( 3 years running), they have had a zero percent budget increase. This statement is in the report: "We have said thank you to the taxpayers for their continued support of education and said we understand the burdens residents face. Teachers are not only dedicated to the children but are also dedicated to the community and therefore agreed to significant salary concessions for the coming year." Pretty IMPRESSIVE statement from a superintendent holding a half time position.
Here in Hebron, during the presentation of the current administrators contract the community heard that the administrators should be rewarded for keeping their salary flat the prior year. The former HBOE rewarded them with a 3 year contract - raises built in for each year -- new cell phones and an $80/month stipend for the cell phone service. Who are our administrators dedicated to -- our community, their pay stubs or our young children? Answer seems clear!
