The District and FUTA held a second negotiations session on May 31, 2017.

Proposals were exchanged on calendar, salaries, hours of employment, extra pay positions, transfer and reassignment, leaves, class sizes, and teachers on special assignment (please see attached proposals from May 8 and May 31).

The District proposed that the parties agree to implement an agreement for 2017-2018 bargaining unit member work calendar including a fall break in exchange for agreeing to pilot a collaboration time proposal for one year. (Please see the attached MOU proposal from the District to FUTA, including the proposed calendar and daily schedules to accommodate collaboration time).The District's proposal would retain current grade 4 and 5 preparation time, would bank instructional time and would reduce the 30 minute additional teacher duty obligation before and after school to establish 1 1/2 hours per week of collaboration time. However, the District does not wish to sacrifice as much instructional time as FUTA proposed in order to implement collaboration.

All articles remain open at this time.

The District proposed to meet again on June 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, or 28. We also proposed August 8.
FUTA was not available to meet during the summer break.

The next negotiations meetings will be September 7, 14, and 28.
