  • Board of School Directors Approves Two – Year Extension to the Collective Bargaining Agreement

    Posted by Amanda Larsen at 7/28/2014
    The Board of Directors of the School District of Haverford Township approved the contract extension negotiated between the School District and the Haverford Township Education Association PSEA/NEA.  The Board approval finalizes the extension of the collective bargaining agreement for two years beyond the current agreement, September 1, 2015-August 30, 2017.
      
          The negotiated collective bargaining agreement includes salary adjustments, and increased employee contribution to medical premiums. The salary increase will be implemented over two years with a year one (2015-2016) increase of 2.42% and a year two increase (2016-2017) of 2.45%. The agreement also includes adjustments to stipend and extra duty pay categories.
     
          In the final year of the agreement, premium contributions, depending on the selected medical plan, will vary from 7.5% to 11.5%. There is also additional language regarding health care coverage adjustments due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act implementation. It contains language, permitting parties to open discussions and move to mediation if the Affordable Care Act presents unanticipated costs.
     
          Board President, Mr. Denis Gray and Human Resources Director, Mr. Gregg Parker thanks the HTEA Leadership for their cooperation and responsiveness in this effort at extending the current agreement. Superintendent, Dr. William Keilbaugh said, "I am very pleased that the Board and teachers agreed on employment terms that enable us to continue to provide the best educational opportunities for the students of our community.

  • Coopertown Students Hear About Trains from Engineer

    Posted by Blu Taylor at 7/21/2014
     
    Ms. Janette Heil invited a special guest reader to her first and second grade LA class at Coopertown, her husband Chris! Chris Heil is a staff consultant for an engineering company, LTK, in Ambler. They consult across the country for passenger rail. He read the book "Shortcut" by Donald Crews. In it, a group of children take a shortcut along the train tracks even though they've been told not to but then a train comes and they don't have time to turn back. They have to jump into briars and water with snakes to avoid the train! Chris brought the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) he is required to wear when he's in the field and spoke about safety with trains. He showed my students his bump hat, safety glasses, and reflective vest. (Some states have color requirements, which is why he has two.) They were excited to get a chance to try some of it on!

  • Middle School Latin Students Ace National Exam

    Posted by Blu Taylor at 7/17/2014
    PerfectScorces  
     
    Haverford Middle School students Josh Angell and Quinn Gallagher (pictured above) won a top award and also earned a perfect score on the National Latin Exam. Only 7% of Latin 1 test-takers accomplished this feat. The National Latin Exam is an international exam given in the United States and 13 other countries, and it tests Latin grammar, history, mythology, and other cultural areas of Rome and its empire.  No Latin textbooks will completely prepare a student for this test, so students study a lot of material outside of the normal class content throughout the course of the year to supplement their information.
