Denise Palmer shared a copy of a cost sheet for a $1200/$900/$500 for certified employees. Chairperson Fitzgiven asked what the 3rd quarter payment was from the State. Dr. Guess stated it was available on the ADE’s website. Legal fund according to Denise Palmer is $19 million and expenditures will end at $10.5 million. Dr. Guess stated he is not going to support a proposal of any kind of bonus for certified employees citing the loss of Desegregation money and the Jacksonville detachment.
Two recommendations were presented to the committee: one from Dr. Guess and one from Chairperson Fitzgiven. After much discussion over AEA days and professional development days the Committee compromised and agreed on one calendar to be presented to the new Community Advisory Board.
