Beginning in July, trustees of the Galt Joint Union High School District have agreed to receive less money for health insurance.
Currently, the district pays up to $800 a month in health benefits for school board members. On Tuesday, they agreed to cut that contribution to $575 per month.
If all five trustees are enrolled, the decision will save $48,000 annually.
Also on Tuesday, trustees:
- Approved ratification of tentative agreement with certificated staff on a district retirement incentive program that launched in 2009-10 in three-year cycles. However, the district would like to utilize the option for the 2011-12 school year and therefore trustees had to vote to change the previously approved cycles.
- Received a presentation on the Project Lead the Way academic program.
- Recognized Maria Orr as an outstanding administrator for the FFA Central Region.
- Discussed, in closed session, Superintendent Daisy Lee’s evaluation, as is typical each April.
