The VEA Bargaining Team met with the District on Thursday, April 17, 2014. We have signed a tentative agreement for a partial restoration of wages, as well as changes to our evaluation article that are consistent with the forms currently being used. A final draft will be approved Thursday, April 24. We will be scheduling informational meetings in the weeks ahead before we bring the tentative agreement for ratification by members. School sites will receive copies of the tentative agreement, before the meetings, for review. Both parties have agreed to continue bargaining on any sunshined proposals that will not be ready for ratification by the end of this school year.
