Angry teachers and parents are taking their crusade against raises for upper level administrators to the community.
Dozens of Central Unified teachers walked door to door Tuesday evening with a petition.
They're gathering signatures to stop the raises cold.
Teachers want the board to reverse their vote on salary increases…118-thousand dollars in raises to the Superintendent and 4 assistants, over several years.
Teacher Jennifer Lively is one of many teachers who objects to salaries at a time when the district can't afford to fill classrooms with basic supplies.
It's sad for me because right now I see parents who don't have materials in their classrooms," Lively says.
The message resonates with some neighbors who opened the door when she and fellow teachers came knocking.
"If that area doesn't make say what a New York area makes, you can't expect people to be paying high salaries," says Larry Fiorani.
George Wilson was one of the seven school board members who voted for the raises.
Wilson says "Central Unified's top administrators were paid 20 percent less than counterparts in other districts."
Central Superintendent Mike Berg will now make over $171,000, a 7% increase from $160,000 last fiscal year.
By comparison, Fresno Unified Superintendent Michael Hanson earns an annual salary of over $302,000.
Hundreds of people have signed the petition so far and plan to show up at the next school board meeting July 24th.
Superintendent Berg was unavailable for comment Tuesday.
