Look here to see what "Edison School District" staff in Milan, Oh agreed to in Dec. 17 2012 for a new contract. Part 1: The Edison Board of Education and the Edison Teachers Association have reached an agreement on a new two year contract covering the 98 teachers employed by the district. In the deal the Teachers have agreed to concessions that will help the district during their current financial struggles. The two year deal will help the financially strapped District save $339,505 over the course of the agreement.

Part 2:

The major cost savings will be seen in the areas of insurance and step freezes. With the new deal teachers will pay more for their insurance increasing their contribution from 10% to 12%. New spousal language was also added to the insurance portion of the contract. This language requires that the spouse of any teacher working for another employer that offers insurance must enroll in single coverage with their employer.

Part 3: The teachers have also agreed to a freeze on step increases for both years of the contract. With the new contract teachers will have agreed to a freeze on the base salary in 3 of the past 5 years and a freeze on step increases for 2 years.

The new contract will also eliminate the Board practice of picking up the employee portion of their STRS retirement contribution. This practice will be eliminated at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year.

The new contract also contains changes in language, most notably the creation of a joint committee that will create a new teacher evaluation tool. This was necessary to meet the change in the law concerning teacher evaluations in the State of Ohio. The new evaluation tool will be used starting with the 2013-2014 school year.

What will Edison get with the new School Funding proposal from Gov. Kasich?

The plan ensures that the first 20 mills of local property tax generate the same as a district with a $250,00 per student property tax base.

Edison Valuation = $312,125,400 Edison students = 1,985 Valuation per student = $157,242 Edison tax revenue on 20 mills at valuation of $312,125,400 is $6,242,508. Proposed tax revenue on 20 mills at $250,000 per student is $9,825,000. (250000 * 1985 students = valuation of $491,250,000) $491,250,000/1000) * 20 = $9,825,000 Under the Kasich plan Edison would receive additional state funding of $3,582,492.
