Letters of Intent to Change Lanes Due by November 1st

All professional staff  who expect to receive a Master’s degree, M+30, or M+60/Doctorate during the 2016-17 School Year, must send formal notification of intent to change salary lanes to Addie Doherty dohertya@wellesleyps.org, no later than November 1, 2015.  The notification should include:  current lane, proposed lane, and the school year (2016-17) in which you hope to change lanes.  This early notification deadline is required so that provisions for anticipated salary lane changes may be included within the new fiscal year budget.  Please note: The list does not carry forward.  You must provide written notice each year until you have achieved the desired lane change.
