Morgan Hill Unified School District’s Board of Trustees ratified a new three-year contract with its administrators that included a 1.5-percent pay raise for the 2018-19 school term at its Oct. 16 meeting.
The Morgan Hill Education Leaders Association, which includes school principals, classified managers and supervisors, settled on the new terms Sept. 19.
The new deal “eliminates the board meeting stipend and adds language allowing the accrual and use of comp time with supervisor approval,” according to the details on the Oct. 16 agenda.
While the pay increase is retroactive to July 1, a new longevity increase of 2.5 percent for five years of service at MHUSD was added to the contract, which runs through July 2021. That “longevity” clause increases by 2.5 percent after each additional five years of staying in Morgan Hill.
Other contract details regarding vacation time are: maximum of 40 days of vacation accrual beginning July 1, 2019; and a maximum of two years’ vacation accrual beginning July 1, 2020.
Other changes to retirement benefits were made in accordance with the Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act.
