Our SVEA bargaining team has been working with the district since February to reach a tentative agreement on a contract. They're goal: to make our schools better places to teach and learn. The bargaining team feels that they've accomplished this task and they're excited to share the details of the tentative agreement (TA) with you at an SVEA general membership meeting on Tuesday, August 23. At this meeting, every SVEA member will have the opportunity to study, discuss, and cast their vote whether to ratify the contract. SVEA is a democratic organization so our members - not the bargaining team - gets the final say on ratification of our contract. Be sure to attend.
What will the general membership meeting look like? The district will be providing a BBQ lunch for staff on Tuesday from 11:45AM-12:30PM. Our SVEA meeting begins at 12:35PM in the Mount Si High School auditorium. But before we can begin you will need to sign-in, receive your ballot, and pick up a packet explaining the details of the tentative agreement. Sign-in will begin about 12:20PM in the commons right outside the auditorium. Look for the table with your school's name on it. From there, head into the auditorium and we'll get started. There's a lot for us to accomplish!
We are looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Please let us know if you have questions.
