Write to the Board of Education and Dr. Watson to urge them to close this gap
Dr. Darneika Watson
Dear [Board Member Name/Dr. Watson],
I am a [parent/teacher/community member] from [school name] and I strongly urge you to agree to GTA’s proposal for a 5% salary increase during your next negotiation session. The quality of our schools is a reflection of the support and respect that you provide to educators. As [an elected board member/superintendent], you should do everything you can to ensure that salaries are comparable with those of neighboring districts. GUSD needs to attract and retain quality educators for our students, which it cannot do while teacher pay is lagging 5% behind recent increases in other districts.
