Grant School Counselors the same pay increase as Teachers

This petition made change with 138 supporters!

Dear Board Members,

The School Counselors of DeKalb County School System were informed several years ago of a 3-tier salary decrease. The rationale for this pay decrease was counselors pay scale should be aligned with the teachers pay scale. This was upsetting financially and emotionally. Our contribution to the students, parents, staff, and district were deemed to be less valuable.

We currently are paid on the Teacher pay scale.

We are requesting, via this petition, that the Board honors School Counselors with the same pay increase as Teachers for 2015-2016 salary budget and all future steps and standard-of-living pay increases.

Please keep in mind that teachers may have the opportunity to receive bonuses based on Teacher Keys; however, Counselors do not have the opportunity for this reward.

Thank you!
