#1. Is there a prevailing sentiment in your community regarding whether administrative salaries are perceived as disproportionately high, in contrast to teacher salaries?

#2. If SB 4, the bill eliminating the option to convert personal leave days into sick days upon retirement, is passed, how significantly do you anticipate it will impact student learning as a result of the increased reliance on substitute teachers to fill classroom vacancies?

KASA Statement on Current House Budget Proposal

The Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA), is releasing the following statement on the Kentucky House Current Budget Proposal:  “KASA extends its gratitude to our dedicated legislators for their unwavering commitment to Kentuckians through House Bill 6 (HB6). We understand the challenges lawmakers face when crafting budgets, and we acknowledge their dedication to the betterment of our state.”  It is because of their desire for a better Kentucky, we are compelled to emphasize the proposed state budget, while commendable in many aspects, falls short in one critical area—enabling school districts to offer competitive teacher salaries to address the dire and growing teacher shortage.

KASA Alert!
Call to Action: Tell your Senator we need more money for teacher salaries
We expect the Senate to offer its version of the state budget, HB 6, in the coming days. NOW is the time to light up the LRC Toll Free Message Line at (800) 372-7181 to let your Senator know we need more money in the budget for districts to apply to salaries. Most senators we meet at the Capitol understand the need to pay teachers more. A message from a constituent goes a long way to encourage them to act on this pressing need.
