Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

Subject:     Summer School – Hourly Rate

There seems to be some confusion relating to the District’s attempt to raise some hourly rates this summer.

As per our contract, teachers working less than four (4) hours/day receive an hourly rate of pay ($31.85/hr.).

Teachers working four (4) hours or more receive 1/200 of their salary. This has not changed.
As per our email, the District wanted to have some teachers, who are receiving the hourly rate, receive 1/400 of their salary.

We tried to reach an agreement; however, the District would only agree to having some teachers, who are being paid the hourly rate, receive an increase.

This is unacceptable (Click Here).

Hopefully, this clarifies the issue.
