Board of Governors Report
Violet gave the Board of governors Report.
The ACCE Committee will meet with Governor Manchin to attempt to have SB 480 reconsidered during the special Education session this summer. ACCE representatives feel that the bill will die and that this is our best chance for passage during the summer interims. The key is to get the Governorís backing for it to be considered. We are all well aware that the present salary schedule we are operating on was developed in the year 2000. And that it has never been fully funded. SB 480 requires all schools to first meet the current salary schedule before moving on to the new one developed from a current market study. Both the HEPC and the CTC are moving ahead with some of the provisions that are in SB480 but there are no plans that have been mapped out for all to see as yet. We are hopeful that SB480 and itsí provisions for classified staff will become effective as soon as is possible to provide continuity in classified salary schedules as well as enhanced opportunities for hiring above base salary and movement within classifications. The next ACCE meeting will be held in Morgantown on May 18. 2010
Jeanie will have the Advanced or Emergency Fund Request Form at Mays meeting for approval.
