Laurel School District Administrators Receive Contract Renewal

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del. - Laurel Education Association board members have voted to renew the contracts of school district administrators.

A large group gathered at the meeting tonight, including parents, community members, teachers, and even students, who showed up in protest. Many of them believe the contracts are too high with the financial bind the district is in, especially with teacher contracts still at an impasse.

"Why is the administration receiving raises when we don't have enough funding for new textbooks in the classroom?" says Thomas Phippin, a concerned parent.

Many community members also came to the meeting to urge Superintendent John Ewald to call off arbitration on the contracts and meet at the bargaining table again. However, some parents tell WMDT, the chance of that happening now is very unlikely.
