President's Message
President's Payday Reminder 4/9/2014:

Dear Members:

Please arrange to be at one of the Information/Ratification meetings next Monday, April 14, at Manor Middle School cafetorium.  There will be a meeting at 4:00 p.m. and another one at 6:00 p.m.  

If you are struggling to make arrangements for child care, Jen Kroesen has volunteered to provide supervision during the meetings in a room across the hall from the cafetoriuim. 

Teachers who are retiring at the end of this school year should attend as Retiree Health Care is part of our contract. 

It will be very helpful to you to know what step and column you are on this year's (2013-2014) Salary Schedule prior to arriving at the meeting.  If you are unsure, use Munis to look it up (go to Pay/Tax Information tab on left side and click; underneath that, click on "Salary Notification;" it will be listed there).  Be aware, though, that the district only updates Munis once a year in the fall.  If you have moved over a column between when they updated Munis in the fall and December 31st of 2013, it may not appear in the system.

Facebook Nuggets:  Please remember not to copy things from Facebook and send them on e-mails through the school e-mail system.  This could possibly result in disciplinary action.  You never know for sure where things from Facebook originate, so be safe and don't do it!  Also, please do not post during the contractual day.  People are watching and posts are time-stamped.

Know Your Contract:   An easy way to find your contract online is to Google "Penn Manor Negotiated Agreement," that way you do not need to remember a website if you need to access your contract in a hurry.

Subsections I and J of the tenth section of your contract are below.  The purpose of these sections is to outline pro-rated benefits for teachers who work less than one-half of the regular teaching schedule and teachers hired after the 61st day.

X.   Professional Compensation 

I.                Teachers hired after July 1, 1985, and who usually work less than one-half of the regular teaching schedule shall receive modified fringe benefits (i.e., hospitalization, major medical, income protection, dental care, vision fund and life insurance) proportionate to the time worked.  This will be accomplished by agreement with the teacher either by the omission of the benefit or pro rata contribution by the teacher for the full benefit.  Under the high school block schedule, teachers teaching two thirds of a teacher’s normal teaching schedule as established by the Board are considered to be 66- 2/3% employees while teachers teaching one third of a teacher’s normal teaching schedule as established by the Board are considered to be 33-1/3% employees.

Teachers hired after July 1, 1985, and who usually work 50% of the regular teaching schedule shall have the above listed fringe benefits paid for by the District for the employee only (less the applicable payroll deduction).  If any of the above listed benefits are extended to include spouse and/or dependents, the costs of such benefits shall be borne by the employee based upon the maximum floating rate.

J.                 Personal leave and sick leave shall be prorated for any teacher hired in any school year after the 61st working day.

PMEA Website:  Dell Jackson will be posting items on the "Buy and Sell" section of our website (  Please send him an e-mail at  Don't forget that you can access our current contract and health care information on our site.

April Representative Council MeetingThe April meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 29, at 4:00 p.m. at Manor Middle Faculty Room.  All members are welcome to attend.

PM CARES (Penn Manor Collecting And Redistributing Essential Supplies)

For 6 years now PMEA has been working closely with the PM school social workers and supplying essential supplies to our Penn Manor families in need. We always appreciate monetary donations and donations of products. Working with support from administration, staff and teachers hold a dress down day once a year. All donations are given to our families.

Any donations of products can be dropped off at any PM school. Mark them "Peg Murr - Hambright" and they can be delivered in the school mail. Monetary donations can be written out to Penn Manor Education Association. In the memo section, please write PM CARES.

This service project is separate from the Penn Manor Family Fund (which also helps our families).

Donations that are distributed are: Qtips, dish soap, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, shampoo and conditioner, body wash, deodorant, hand soap, bar soap, toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste, sponges, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, cleaning products, shaving creams, razors, feminine hygiene products, resealable plastic bags (large and small), foil, trash bags, napkins.

Thank you for your continued support of this project. Our families are very appreciative!
