Website Improvements 
This summer we are updating website content, and are working on new ways to make the information easier for you to find. We have already added 3 new navigational tabs with information for Students, Parents, and Staff.  We moved the contacts to the ABOUT tab and under the shortcuts. 
Here is an updated site map if your are confused about where to find what you need.
Keep watching for updates.

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

   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.
