Board Statement Regarding Negotiations
Thursday, November 8, 2018
The GA Board of Education and the GAEA have continued to engage in negotiations for a new contract since April, 2018. Recently, the two sides have worked with a State appointed mediator to resolve their differences, the biggest being language that the Board wished to include that kept an ineffective teacher (which G-A currently has none of) from getting the same salary step increases as highly effective teachers. The attached documents reflect the most recent offers from both the GA-EA and the Board. Also included are the estimated salary schedules for both Board proposals, one that includes the “ineffective teacher” language (Proposal A) and one that does not include the language (Proposal B).
Links to the both team’s proposal as well as other items from the Board’s package proposal for which the negotiation teams have informally agreed upon can be found here.
