Congratulations to Morgan Showalter for his hard work, dedication and contributions to the Kirwan Commission’s recommendations. The Blueprint for Maryland’s Future is a huge win for the Maryland school system. However, we must continue to push for full inclusion of PSRPs. PSRPs are the foundation of helping and supporting instruction that goes on inside and outside of school buildings. Even though there was much positive discussion among the commissioners, many public comments, support from our union partners, and tons of letters and emails, the Kirwan Commissioners were not able to come up with a consensus about also raising PSRP pay at the same time as the teachers.
Our school system will succeed and advance if all teachers and PSRPs get better resources, training, and increased salaries. Our students deserve the best from all of us.
Letter of Compassion
So much has changed since the Covid pandemic hit the world. Individuals have been driven by frustration, fear and anxiety. The PSRP executive board would like to let every BTU member know we care about you. We appreciate the courage of PSRPs, teachers, and school staff members that have been in the building since September working hard to stay safe educating our students. The PSRP executive board would like to extend support to anyone who needs it. Thank you for your dedication and service.
