PORT ANGELES — Administrators who volunteered to give up incremental pay increases just wanted to do what they could for the good of the district, said some of those who made the offer.
Stacey Schimetz, human resources supervisor for the district, said she had thought of the action long before it was brought up at an April 24 meeting.
“I have two daughters in the school system, and even though I’m a mom and every penny counts, I also want to be able to invest in their future, so I had even thought about this before it was brought up,” she said.
The Port Angeles School Board will be given a letter from the group — called the district leadership team — offering to forego the pay increases, and may consider action on it on Monday, Superintendent Gary Cohn has said.
None of those who spoke to the Peninsula Daily News could recall who had brought up the idea.
