October 29, 2018 Teacher Negotiations Update

 

 

The District and GRTA held their first mediation meeting with the assistance of a State Mediator on October 29, 2018.  The State Mediator met with both negotiation teams separately and acted as a go-between to assist them in reaching a final agreement.  Unfortunately, the parties were not able to reach agreement.  However, the parties have agreed to hold a second mediation meeting with the assistance of the State Mediator on November 29, 2018.

 

Superintendent Bryan Ballenger stated: “Although we were unable to reach an agreement today with the assistance of the State Mediator, I am optimistic that we will reach an equitable agreement when we continue mediation on November 29.”
