 June 6th, 2002, Dr. Ingram votes to authorize the restoration of an amount equal to the salaries and benefits that were reduced in 2001-2002, “That the School Board of Miami-Dade County, Florida, authorize the Superintendent to restore an amount equal to the salaries and benefits that were reduced in fiscal year 2001-2002 in fiscal year 2003, such restoration of salaries and benefits would be prospective and not related to prior services; and, as soon after July 1, 2002 as possible, negotiate with affected bargaining agents to determine the manner and time of restoration.

A vote was taken on Dr. Ingram’s amendment. The motion carried unanimously.
