Some educators will see pay cuts

-A A +A
By Kellie Parkin

Superintendent Bob Hastings has told Levy County teachers to prepare for more budget cuts, including some that will in effect result in a pay cut to many area educators.

Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, all high school teachers will be required to teach six out of six class periods every day, according to Hastings. After-school seventh period classes will be eliminated and that time will become the teachers’ planning period, he said.

“We’re trying to get prepared for next year,” Hastings said. “I told them to start planning for it.”

Stipends usually accompany an extra class taught, whether sixth or seventh period. For teaching the sixth class, teachers receive an extra $3,000 per year. For teaching a seventh period class, teachers receive an extra one-sixth of their annual pay. The number of seventh period classes is limited depending on the school, and is usually between one and three per school.
