All employee bargaining groups’ contracts ended on June 30, 2019. The district will negotiate new contracts with those groups for the 2019-2021 term. 

In the interests of transparency, the Board of Education is sharing its guiding values for negotiations and will post proposals that are exchanged at neogitation sessions, which are public meetings under state law. 

See current status of negotiations for all employee groups.

Guiding Values

As the district works to negotiate new contracts with each employee group, it will follow these guiding values, which stem from the district’s mission of Each Student. Future Ready. Community Strong., and it’s core values of high expectations, respect, integrity and partnership.

In negotiating with employee bargaining groups, we believe in:

  • Creating a school system that values diversity and serves the unique needs of our students, families and staff 
  • Valuing the professionalism of our staff and their roles in serving our students and families
  • Working within our budget to ensure programs and services are sustainable
  • Acting with integrity and in partnership with all employee groups

We will accomplish this by:

  • Clear and open communication about district priorities
  • Transparency about the district’s financial position
  • Work with each employee group to establish working norms
