Marquette School Principals Agree to Wage Freeze

With economic times as difficult as they are, and enrollments going down, many U.P. school districts have been forced to make cuts to important parts of their budgets.

Marquette school principals recognize the tough times as well.

Several Marquette Area Public Schools administrators agreed to a pay freeze for the current school year.

The MAPS Board accepted the contract at its meeting last night.

It comes a week after the Marquette Area Building Administrators — the principals’ union — approved the contract language.

Non-union administrators and support staff have already agreed to a pay freeze for this school year.

The contract is retroactive to July 1st.
