For starters here: Site visitors may want to review salaries and benefits for those employed by SRVUSD. See the relevant Transparent California page. The figures shown there are now for calendar 2022. The eventual full-year 2023 numbers will show the full effect of an 8.5% cross-the-board raise, regardless of merit.
At the October 18, 2022 SRVUSD Board meeting, teacher salaries were increased by another 8.5%, retroactive to July first, 2022. An additional one-time payment of 1% of annual salaries as of November 1, 2022 was added too. Some benefits (e.g. payments into retirement funds) will have increased proportionately as well.
Traditional laborer contracts are considered to involve 250 employment days per year ( = 50 weeks, 5 days per week — but counting holidays and sick days in the total).
So keep in mind while looking at the Transparent California salary and benefit numbers linked above (and now going significantly higher) that SRVUSD's upper level, central office administrators have contracts which begin with only 225 employment days per year, including holidays and 15 sick days (which accumulate if unused).
School-site administrators (assistant principals and principals) have annual contracts ranging from 193 to 218 employment days. Teacher contracts are ordinarily for just 186 employment days per year. The relevant summary table is copied for convenience below.
Meanwhile, site visitors may wish to review SRVUSD's agreement with its San Ramon Valley Education Association (SRVEA, the teacher union).
Outstanding teachers and administrators (those who work successfully, year after year, to inculcate students with academic knowledge and beneficial skills) earn what they're paid, perhaps even more.
But those who instead misuse their positions of trust to indoctrinate boys and girls (young men and young women) with racialist animosities and radical political biases, or who push sex-and-gender confusion and revolution, don't deserve even a fraction of the lucrative compensation packages they receive. But [no] thanks to teacher unions, teacher pay scales have nothing to do with merit. Pay depends only on how many years a given individual has been in place and how many credit hours he or she has amassed.
Lots of highly skilled people who work a regular 250-day employment year would be happy to receive what SRVUSD teachers are paid for an employment year that is only 186 days in length — in other words, 64 days (9 weeks) shorter!
And that's before considering SRVUSD's expansive benefits. Those will soon be enumerated here as well.
The + 15, +30, +45, + 60, +75 column headings are a reference to semester hours of credit over and above the basic bachelor's degree. The credit hours often consist of silly "professional education" courses and Marxist indoctrination — the kind of counterproductive and sometimes subversive material which then appears in SRVUSD's "Equity" programs, force-fed to captive-audience classrooms. The STEPS in this "Step and Column" chart represent the longevity of the teacher, e.g. Year 1, Year 2, etc. And these are school years, not calendar years.
