Teachers contract, wellness, instructional materials, special education all up for vote

sps hqThe strike is over and a deal negotiated, but the Seattle School Board has yet to vote on the 2015-18 collective bargaining agreement with the Seattle Education Association. That is slated to happen this Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Special education action is an MOU for consultant services. Items for introduction include the 2015-16 state legislative agenda; a resolution in support of the McCleary decision, and approval of the student assignment plan (revisions proposed around tie-breakers, waitlists).
