    ‚ÄúSuperintendent rakes in the money, while retirees and employees are struggling maintain their health insurance‚ÄĚ
    - Barbara Noble


    At OUSD the Superintendent rakes in the money, while retirees and employees are struggling to maintain their health insurance. The generous salary gesture of the Board of Education towards Mr. Godley came about a time when the School District is claiming inability to pay the increase to the health insurance premium for classified employees and retirees.

    Employees have been paying 5% or 10% by payroll dedication toward their health care insurance upon retirement, in addition to making substantial contributions to their current health insurance, also by payroll deductions.

    I feel that employees and retirees are dismayed with their treatment by the District. We are the Clerks, Custodians, Maintenance Workers and others, who assure the children have a safe, clean and organized school to attend. Many of these employees and retirees have dedicated their entire working lives to making sure there was a school system in which the community can trust to educate their children.

    The fiscal priorities of the Board of Education leave much to be desired.
