ACT TO APPROVE MOUNTAIN VIEW MONTESSORI CHARTER SCHOOL CLASSIFIED SALARY SCALE (Mrs. Clark)

Mountain View Montessori developed a classified salary scale that was Board approved in September 2010. Concern about the fiscal impact of the scale for Mountain View Montessori led to the staff adopting the scale but freezing advancement.

At the April 2012 Mountain View Montessori Advisory Committee meeting, the action to "unfreeze" the classified salary scale was passed. Based on analysis of the Mountain View Montessori budget, this is a financially sustainable action that will result in fair compensation and lower staff turnover, which positively impacts our educational program.

The recommended action is to approve the Mountain View Montessori Charter School Classified Salary Scale as presented.
