Two school districts have recently settled new contracts. In September, Massapequa signed a 4-year agreement (2012-2016) for a 0% raise plus salary step increment in the first year and a 1% raise with salary step increments in the following 3 years. (However, in the contract’s middle 2 years, the increment increases don’t take effect until February of those years). Hicksville signed a 4-year contract (2013-1017) last November for a 1.5% raise plus increment in the first year; 1.5% raise in year 2 with no increment; 0.5% raise with half increment in year 3; and 1% raise with half increment in the final year of the agreement. Hicksville makes a 20% contribution to their health insurance; Massapequa chips in 15%.
