i wonder why the financial payout given to retiring school personel is never discussed on this venue,in the local paper or anywhere else.It is the biggest rip off going on anywhere in the state at the present time. with 35 employees retiring this year the board will pay out over 2,500,000 in the next 5 years just for these workers. additional funds are being paid to other retirees over the last 10 years and in the future to new retirees. they receive a full years salary if they have accumulated 200 sick days,and additional funds for sick days beyond that amount. with your taxes so high why is this the best kept secret anywhere. kearny citizens wake up ,you are being duped.

The teachers don't get disability pay. So instead they accumulate sick days and get paid for it if they aren't used. Get over it.

Why didn't you go down to the BOE office and question Les' payout a few years ago?

Nonsense. If a teacher uses a sick day, a substitute must be hired for the day. For every sick day that isn't used, money is saved. The town is still

saving money by paying off a portion of those sick days at retirement.

if the bd.of ed. is above board ,please inform the public how much is being spent on unused sick days starting fron 1998 when the extreme generousity to the teachers began, compliments of tax payers. It is public record, how much did mr. gaulton, mr. digesserre and current retiree, mrs graham accumulate with sick and vacation days. no district in the state has better deal than kearny. everyone that was involved should hang their heads in shame. tax payers wake up.

I've been teaching since 1984 and have been accumulating my sick days since then. Where did you get the idea that this began in 1998?

the contract signed by the board and teachers in 1997-98 agreed to pay all school employees a full years salary for sick days upon retirement if they accumulated 200 sick days.Additional payment,not as generous is paid for days beyond 200. Example: a teacher making 80,000 their last year beore retirement receives not only a nice,but deserved pension; but also an additional 16,000 per year for the next 5 years. No other district is so kind with the tax payers money. If a principal retires making 120,000 its 24,000 per year. nice deal but it smells

Try looking at it this way....

As stated in a previous post, teachers are not eligible for State Disability, therefore they can accumulate their sick days. When a teacher is ready to retire and they have accumulated 180 sick days they could, in reality, take off an entire school year, and be paid their current salary. The Board would then also have to pay a sub $75 per day for the first 20 days, then $100 for the remaining 160 days.

In order for a School Board employee to receive their current salary for their accumulated sick time they must have at least 200 days.

This payout, as you call it, actually saves the district money over the course of an employee's career.

Not to mention, that Kearny Board of Ed employees have one of the best attendance rates in NJ. Stability in the educational environment, we all know, is beneficial for the students and the learning process.

you or a relative are obviously benefitting from this plan, otherwise you are not aware of what other districts do regarding sick days. i am not blaming the teachers for taking advantage,its the bd.of ed. members who are responsible for this close to criminal giveaway.

Disalility insurance is for the disabled and disabled teachers receive it.It has nothing to do with sick days. Just think about it when you receive your tax bills.

No they don't.

Teachers have to purchase their own disability insurance, otherwise, they do not receive it as part of their benefits package through the board of ed. They do not CONTRIBUTE, they pay for it on their own.
