Mr. Susin explained that he had met with PreK teachers in Tallahassee who talked to legislators about what is preventing PreK teachers from receiving the same benefits (i.e. retirement) as other teachers. There appeared to be many misconceptions that had no statistical data to back them. He is hoping to see change in the future.
Mr. Susin also mentioned the SIAC (Superintendent's Insurance Advisory Committee) and said the committee feels there needs to be more education inside of schools. They had also discussed the extreme costs of specialty drugs and were looking for solutions. There needs to be prioritization of cost before discussing raising rates for employees.
