This is a reminder that the TE School Board will hold a special meeting tonight, Monday, July 8, 2013 at 7:00 pm in the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District Administration Offices at 940 West Valley Road, Suite 1700 in Wayne, to discuss the Vanguard Assessment Appeal Resolution . Click here for agenda.
Beyond the resolution of the Vanguard appeal, “Other Recommended Action” is listed on the agenda. As we all now know, the Obama administration has just announced that it will delay Obamacare requirement for businesses (school districts) with more than 50 workers provide health insurance by one year. The Treasury Department has announced that the administration will start enforcing the mandate in 2015, rather than January 1, 2014 in order “to give business more time to prepare.”
Based on the recent news from Washington, I am hopeful that our school board will join other school districts across the country and reconsider their earlier decision. There is no longer any reason to decrease the hours of District employees from full-time to part-time for the 2013-14 year. The Board members regularly state the importance of all employees to the District — tonight’s meeting will offer an opportunity for them to show us. Here’s to reversing course and re-instituting the hours of the aides, paraeducators and paraprofessionals.
