WEAC and Democratic directed school board at work. How much of a raise is under consideration now for 2013? No comment about that from the administration. Nothing new. It doesn't look like they need a big raise does it.

Leaving their union and the school board out of it...why wouldn't they deserve a raise? Do they not work hard enough to deserve one? Are the results not there to show that our district is top notch? My children receive an excellent education here in Greendale, and I for one thinks every staff member in this district deserves a raise.

Do the Greendale taxpayers understand that the school district is pretty much out of line with the rest of the school districts? Will this district say no? I am glad there is an election coming.

The numbers in this article don't make sense. The top salary for a Greendale teacher is $89,789, which ranks second behind Port Washington‐Saukville ($84,282). This is all how fobar this place is.

Excellent! I'm proud to pay our teachers high. We all know the community benefits of recruiting and retaining high quality teachers!

Is anybody worried about this pay schedule?

I live in Greenfield and would give my right arm for my child to be in your district. I was even considering trying to sell my house and move but my finances just do not allow. Keep a close eye on what you have and do whatever you can to maintain it.

So you don't think that pay has any correlation to quality of teacher and/or quality of the education? What do you think they should be paid?
