ALPINE TEACHERS AND PUBLIC EXPRESS FRUSTRATION AT THE BOARD AND SUPERINTENDENT

 

By Janis Mork

November 30, 2013 (Alpine)- At the  Alpine Union School District Board meeting on November 21st, many teachers and the community expressed their frustrations at the school board over fiscal issues, many asking why the Superintendent gets a raise when the district is facing a financial crisis and teachers are being asked to take more furloughs and cuts.

Everyone who spoke voiced anger at the school Board or criticized the Superintendent. In all, there were 22 speakers.  Superintendent Tom Pellegrino responded, “I believe I’m the only person who makes less money,” noting that cuts have negated his raise, as he explained in detail in a later interview with ECM.” I do not have an overall raise.”
