Seattle Times reports deal likely between district, teachers

With a little more than a week to go till Seattle Public Schools classes begin, our partners at the Seattle Times report tonight that the district and its teachers union believe they’ve reached a tentative contract agreement. By most accounts, these had not been easy negotiations, so that’s bigger news than it might have been some years. The Seattle Education Association already had a membership meeting scheduled for Thursday, so if a deal has indeed been reached, that’s when teachers will vote. More details are expected tomorrow, according to the Times report.

    I for one would LOVE to see value added components to the reviews. I’ve been dealing w/the school district for three years both in Special Education and General Education.

    Good teachers deserve the moon handed to them on a plate but the bad ones that are just biding their time to retirement need to be kicked to the curb.

    Thankfully the good teachers have outweighed the bad but it can be hard work indeed to undo the damage done by a bad teacher.

Sorry, comment time is over.
