New report supports smarter compensation
"Lockstep teacher pay makes it harder for schools to fulfill what everyone agrees is their most important responsibility: giving students the best possible education," according to a report released today by The New Teacher Project.

The report identifies low early career pay, pressure for great teachers to leave their district or the classroom entirely, and the lack of recognition for teaching excellence as problems inherent in traditional salary schedules. It makes three recommendations: 1) make early career teaching salaries competitive with those in related fields, 2) offer raises for strong classroom performance, and 3) create incentives to teach in high-need schools.
 
Negotiations update: Mediator joins process
The Reynoldsburg Board of Education has requested the assistance of a federal mediator in its talks with the Reynoldsburg Education Association/Ohio Education Association in hopes of more quickly reaching an agreement that helps the district attract and keep the best teachers for our students.

Negotiations commenced on May 23 with an exchange of initial proposals and continued in three bargaining sessions through last week. Despite early informal conversations about an expedited settlement, the association's team stalled at last Thursday's session. The OEA spearheaded picketing last week and today and has told local members to prepare for a strike.
 
Kids’ meal program sees addition of fun activities
Special activities are planned at one of Reynoldsburg City Schools’ summer feeding sites through Aug. 1. For the remainder of the summer, there will be special activities planned at the Reynoldsburg High School’s Livingston Avenue campus. On Tuesdays through Thursdays, an educator will be at the site to lead physical activities, games and nutrition lessons from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. On Thursdays from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., COSI will be on hand to head up programs that relate to science, math, and crime scene investigation (CSI). A special activity is planned for Thursday, July 3, when visitors from the Columbus Zoo will be drop in from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.  
Mills students put down roots in their own garden
With the help of their teachers and about two dozen volunteers, students at Herbert Mills STEM Elementary School got their hands dirty just before the last week of school making planting boxes and filling them with herbs and vegetables. Volunteers came from the community, as well as Scotts MiracleGro and the American Heart Association. The association’s program — “My Heart, My Life,” funded by donations from Scotts — provided raised beds, soil and seeds, and gardening tools. The focus of the project is health and nutrition, said Principal Teresa Smith.
