The District and the Teachers Association reached agreement on salary and other important negotiable issues.
The tentative agreement includes a 1% salary schedule increase effective January 1, 2018, and another 1% salary schedule increase effective January 1, 2019.
In addition, two mandatory professional development days will be added to the work year (from 184 to 186 days), beginning in 2018-2019. A third mandatory professional development day will be added beginning with the 2019-2020 regular work year (from 186 to 187 days). Per Diem compensation for each additional day will be included on the salary schedules.
This agreement concludes negotiations for 2017-2018 on Salary, Benefits, and Hours of Employment, and for 2018-2019 on Salary and Hours of Employment.
This tentative agreement will soon be presented to the Teachers Association membership for ratification, and then to the Governing Board for approval.
Negotiations will continue on other issues.
Thanks to both bargaining teams for their efforts and professionalism during these negotiations.
