PRESS RELEASE – Dublin Educators’ Association votes for a 0% Salary Increase for the 2013-2014 School Year.

For Immediate Release
September 7, 2012

Dublin Educators’ Association votes for a 0% Salary Increase for the 2013-2014 School Year.

In the spring of 2011, Dublin City School District had their state funding cut by Governor Kasich’s budget known as House Bill 153. In April of 2011, the teachers of Dublin Educators’ Association responded with a salary giveback of over 2 million dollars to save 48 teaching positions, keep class size lower, and preserve programs which make Dublin City Schools unique and special.

Since 2007 Dublin City School District has made over 15 million dollars in cuts while still providing an exceptional education to students and becoming a nationally recognized school district.

Today the teachers of Dublin Educators’ Association have once again proven their commitment to the students and community of Dublin with over 97% of votes in favor of extending the current contract, which was set to expire July 31, 2013, through the 2013-2014 school year with a 0% salary increase.

It is our hope that the community recognizes the continuous commitment of the teachers as well as the devastating impact a failure of Issue 48 will have on our students. Passage of Issue 48 will maintain quality teachers, keep class sizes lower, and preserve educational opportunities and after school programs for students.
