The Caldwell School District still doesn’t have a contract agreement for 2017-18, and won’t have a deal for several more weeks. And that’s all Superintendent Shalene French is saying. “At the conclusion of our mediation on July 17, the federal mediator asked us not to speak about the process,” French said in a brief email to Idaho Education News Wednesday.
AMMON — Bonneville School District trustees have approved plans to float a $58.5 million bond issue for a new middle school this August. The decision came during a special Wednesday board meeting aimed at addressing Ammon’s rapid population growth, which has resulted in a recent bond issue for a new high school, pushed the district’s middle school enrollment to capacity and left at least two current elementary schools overcrowded.
In Caldwell, district and teachers’ union negotiators are still looking for an agreement — but the delay doesn’t have that much to do with dollars. The district wants to award raises based on the career ladder, Idaho’s five-year plan to boost teacher salaries. Depending on experience, and educational credentials, a young teacher could get an 11 to 13 percent raise. But what does the Caldwell School District do to reward veteran teachers, who wouldn’t qualify for a pay raise under the career ladder?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
