WHEN TEACHERS ARE NOT FAIRLY COMPENSATED, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR SCHOOLS, AND YOUR COMMUNITY SUFFER.

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP...


Step up to advocate for fair compensation

TOGETHER, WE NEED TO SPEAK UP FOR OUR EDUCATORS!

  • FAIR WAGES - The district is offering a 1% pay raise to teachers while administrators are receiving 3.6%. Teachers took no raise in 2020-21. This offer doesn't align with the cost of living raises nearby districts provide.

  • RETENTION - 49 skilled, experienced, and talented teachers left the Burlingame district this past year, which ultimately hurts your children's quality of education and makes it difficult to meet classroom goals.

  • HIGH-QUALITY INSTRUCTION - Educators work hard, especially with the pandemic increasing stress and pivoting curriculum. They went beyond for our children, and yet are being devalued and deflated.

  • CONSISTENCY - Long-term student success means schools attracting and rewarding good work. Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning. Let's show them their earned respect.


HOW BURLINGAME PARENTS CAN HELP:

There's a multi-million dollar reserve that can alleviate these issues. Advocate on behalf of our teachers by contacting elected school board officials. You voted them in to reflect your concerns, have your voice heard.
