Change the pay schedule for NNPS and NHREC employees

This petition had 538 supporters

I am the proud mother of 3 children, educated in Newport News Public Schools. I am also a new employee of  New Horizons Regional Educational Centers. During my hiring process it came to my attention we are paid once a month. While discussing the inconvenience of this pay schedule, administration made the comment "That is how it is, that's how it's always been."

I strongly believe that the voice of the hard working people can and will implement change. I hear the concerns of my coworkers and understand how being paid once a month can make it difficult to budget any household. As an adult, we know unexpected expenses  can come up 365 days year.  Currently, the people responsible for molding the minds of our future generation are paid only 12 of those 365 days. We are asking for our local school government to change our paydays to either bi-weekly (every 2 weeks) or semi-monthly (24x yr.).

Please hear and act on the concerns of our educators and caretakers of our children. Reconsider the existing pay schedule and boost the morale of the people who make Newport News Public Schools the award winning school system it is.
