Following a report condemning the Anne Arundel school system's handling of child abuse cases, Maryland's school superintendent expressed amazement that many teachers interviewed did not recognize signs of abuse or realize it is their responsibility to report it.Yesterday, the county schools took the first step toward changing that.During two half-hour seminars at the Carver Staff Development Center in Crofton, 262 new teachers and more than 700 custodians became the first school employees to receive new handouts listing steps to follow if they suspect a student has been abused.

AN EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | June 23, 2011
The likelihood of a negotiating impasse between Harford County Public Schools and the local teachers union will no doubt drag out further any final contract settlement between the two sides. The stalemate may also eventually trigger a test of the state's new binding arbitration law for teacher negotiations, but we're still a fur piece from that unfortunate occurrence. We do know the teachers were promised a 3 percent raise, a step increment raise for next year and another one to catch up from the one missed in the current year as salaries were frozen.

When County Executive Robert R. Neall agreed last December to restore wage concessions to school employees who had been asked to take four furlough days, few workers actually expected to see the money.But earlier this week, Neall announced that some money was, in fact, being returned. On Wednesday night, the Board of Education voted to return the $811,672 to school employees.School system Budget Officer Jack White said the money equals about four-fifths of a day's pay. Instead of four furlough days, employees now must give up 3.2 days, he said.

Carroll County's school board blundered when it approved a $6,000 pay increase for the county's school superintendent, R. Edward Shilling, and a $3,000 raise to the deputy superintendent, Brian Lockard. Mr. Shilling's pay will be $104,626 and Mr. Lockard's $84,343 for the next school year. While the raises are a tiny amount in the county's $112.3 million education budget, they could exacerbate the level of aggravation among the county's school employees, parents and citizens.School employees -- from teachers to cafeteria workers -- are angry because they were unable to get a multi-year contract during the last round of negotiations.

Howard County schools Superintendent Michael E. Hickey has been given a 1.13 percent salary increase for next year by the school board, about the same size as the raises negotiated by teachers and other school employees.Hickey's four top administrators also were granted 1.13 percent pay raises, and other central office employees likely will receive about the same amount, said schools spokeswoman Patti Caplan.The raises go into effect Monday, when the new fiscal year begins. They were approved by the county school board this month in executive sessions but were not announced until yesterday.

As a recent letter to the editor noted, studies have shown that a gun in the home increases the risk of suicide, murder and accidents ("Arming school employees only raises danger," April 7). As a footnote to all the media coverage about the massacre that occurred in Newtown, Conn., it should be noted that had Adam Lanza's mother taken the precautions needed and necessary to having guns in her home with an unstable individual having access to them, just maybe this terrible shooting would not have occurred.

Of that, $67 million would come from the county, and the rest from state and federal sources.Only one union has not settled -- the Carroll Association of School Employees, which represents clerical workers, instructional assistants and licensed practical nurses.

Ten months after promising to develop an ethics code, Baltimore County school officials have yet to establish standards of conduct to prevent conflicts of interest between school employees and contractors.Officials said yesterday that Superintendent Anthony G. Marchione's original September deadline -- triggered by a controversial $5 million, no-bid technology contract -- was impossible to meet, but a proposal will be presented to the school board July 2."It was time well spent," said board member Robert F. Dashiell, who predicted the code would be approved at that meeting.

Baltimore County school employees will be able to choose from among five retirement plan provider options, after an 8-0 school board vote last night. The five recommended vendors for 403(b) retirement plans are: AIG Retirement, ING Life Insurance & Annuity Co., Lincoln Financial Group, MetLife Resources and Security Financial Resources & Security Distributors Inc. It is expected that one will be selected as a third-party administrator, school officials said. Board member Valerie A. Roddy recused herself, citing a potential conflict of interest: Her husband's law firm represents one of the bidders.
