The SVEA bargaining team, along with the SVSD team, has accomplished their task. We have a tentative agreement on a complete package as of August 8th.
The bargaining team is very excited to recommend it to you. It includes additional pay without additional work, new language on use of personal leave, less paperwork on tech, complete evaluation language, more teacher voice in decision making, some flexibility on Friday PD, new workload and class size language, remedies for lack of subs, changes in the co-curricular schedule, and much, much more.
We will be going over the details of the agreement on August 23rd at our General Membership meeting. This is an "off-the-clock" meeting at Mt. Si Auditorium. It will occur right after the back to school BBQ.
The team has put in more than 100 hours of planning, preparing, and being at the table. Please plan on spending an hour listening to the details and voting.
Enjoy the rest of your summer. See you soon.
President, Snoqualmie Valley Education Association
