As mentioned in my last update, impasse mediation was held on Friday, November 4, 2016. I am happy to report the District and the Teachers Association came to agreement on a salary settlement. The tentative agreement includes a 2% salary increase retroactively applied on July 1, 2016 and a 1.5% salary increase applied on January 1, 2017, for a total salary increase of 3.5%.
This salary agreement concludes all open bargaining items for the 2016-17 year. In the near future, I will send out a final update covering all of the work our bargaining teams accomplished.
