Negotiations continued today, 1/18/18. We continued to discuss the Athletic Director Stipend issue for Middle and High Schools and the Administration's request for additional training time for elementary teachers. We also discussed salary and have made progress since the negotiations of December; there is now a discussion of money on the salary schedule, rather than a one time bonus that was offered prior to the revision in the SCCS Budget. We meet again on 1/31/18, and I will update you again after that meeting. Many of you have asked about the calendar: the calendar is part of the negotiations package. We do hope to come to an agreement soon, and at that time, the calendar dates would go out.
