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.

Howard County schools Superintendent Michael E. Hickey and his four top administrators are receiving 4 percent salary increases for the coming school year, matching the minimum raises negotiated by teachers and other school employees.Although relatively small, the raises may further strain tensions between the County Council and school system, which have been fighting over education dollars since the beginning of the year.The raise boosted Dr. Hickey's annual salary from $115,750 to $120,380 July 1. The salaries of the four associate superintendents -- Sydney L. Cousin, Sandra J. Erickson, Maurice Kalin and James R. McGowan -- increased from $92,433 to $96,130.

Please explain why Baltimore County school "leaders" agreed to pay $150,000 to the two school employees who were given contracts by former Superintendent Joe Hairston if the contract was illegal? (School system agrees to settlement with two employees," Aug. 13.) This makes no sense and is another example of unelected people making decisions for those whose taxes pay the freight! As a taxpayer, I resent this type of activity and expect the county executive to rescind this nonsense or Mr. Hairston to pony up to the county treasury.

I taught in Baltimore County public schools for over 30 years. During that time, I produced an album titled "Kindergarten Blues." The children at my school wanted to own this CD, and I was willing to sell it to them at cost, making absolutely no profit. It would have cost $1 per CD. The Board of Education denied that request, citing their ethics documents. I was fine with that decision, and still am. It amazes and amuses me that an assistant superintendent, Barbara Dezmon, has developed a program, called AIM, that the district tried to force teachers to use, but has now backed off on under pressure from teachers, legislators and parents.

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.

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.
