10/18/23 Update: The membership voted overwhelmingly (99% in favor) to approve the tentative agreement with the district. The ratification vote concluded Sunday, October 8 and the Federation notified HR of the vote. On October 18, 2023, the BOT approved the tentative agreement. The district will work to implement the new contract, including new salaries and hourly rates, new health care changes, and retroactive checks. As always, thanks for the support and patience during this extended negotiations process.


The Federation is holding a vote from Monday, October 2, 2023, at 12:00 AM to Sunday, October 8, 2023, at 8:00 PM to ratify our current tentative agreement (TA) with the District so that it can be implemented as our new contract.
