The District and CSEA held their second meeting on December 10, 2018 to continue to bargain in good faith on reopener negotiations for the 2018-2019 school year. 

 

The District made the following proposal for the 2018-2019 school year:

 

A 3.5 % increase to the salary schedule, effective July 1, 2018; and
A $100 increase to the District’s employer contribution for health benefits, effective October 1, 2018 (increase from $13,200 to $13,300); and

The District and CSEA will reconvene negotiations, after returning from the holiday break, on January 24, 2019.
