The Pike current school salaries only total 16.7 million......of which the TEACHERS only share 6.5 million. Now we can justify about 5.1 more million dollars, right?
Too bad the TEACHERS will probably not see any of it.
We only have 1 Superintendent, 25 Custodians, 4 Principals, 6 Assistant Principals, 1 Plant Operations Director, 1 School Psychologist, 1 Pre-K Director, 3 High School Counselors, 3 Elementary Counselors, 2 Middle School Counselors, Clerical People with VARIOUS ASSORTED TITLES, etc.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We have Intervention this and Intervention that....In House detention teacher, Alternative Instructional Personnel,
We need more Deputies and less Raising of Children in the school systems.
