Teacher Pay Raise Bill Being Negotiated at Capitol

One year after a historic teacher walkout debate rages at the Oklahoma state capitol about a muchdiscussed teacher pay raise.

Senate Bill 441 is the lone teacher pay raise bill alive in the 2019 legislative session. The bill would grant a $1,200 pay raise to teachers across the state including those in the Kingston and Madill school districts.

The bill’s sponsors are Senator Marty Quinn (R-Claremore) and Rep. Rhonda Baker (R-Yukon).

However, the pay raise may come with a catch. An amendment added to the bill on April 24 would require a minimum number of instruction hours and could result in more schools returning to a five-day school week.

Madill Schools are already compliant with this rule, said Larry Case, superintendent.

‘Marshall County Ministerial Alliance’ Assisting Families

I am honored to know many of the ministers/pastors in the Marshall County area. I will have been here nine years this coming June. It was about seven years ago that we created the “Marshall County Ministerial Alliance.”

The main reason the Alliance was created was to encourage area pastors to get together and fellowship together. There have been many pastors who have come and gone over those seven years. This is a great group for new pastors, and even pastors who have been here awhile, to get connected with a great group of Godly people.

Every year, during the “National Day of Prayer (first Thursday in May), we gather together to show a united spiritual connection in the community.
