Helping School Administrators And Their Districts Reach Accord

Under Act 93, each school district in Pennsylvania must devise its own agreement that sets out the salaries and benefits for administrators and equivalent staff. These agreements are typically designed to last for a fixed period of time — most commonly between two and five years — and establish how much pay principals and school supervisors will receive, the health plans they will take part in, the length of their vacations and related considerations.

As with all employment contracts, Act 93 agreements can be incredibly difficult to devise. School administrators seek — and deserve — fair payment for their services, and often mandate measures that ensure the security of their jobs. Yet even such reasonable demands may not, ultimately, be to the school district's advantage. Teachers and parents are wary of Act 93 agreements that overpay administrators and grant them immunity for any and all actions.

As such, is essential to find an attorney who is able to address both the needs of administrators and the needs of the district, and help negotiate mutually beneficial contracts.
