On Tuesday, 5/18/21, the district made a ludicrous offer of 1% per year over three years to REA members. Thus continues rsd's disrespect to the work of its certified educational staff. The district says it wants to attract and retain quality teachers who represent the diversity of our student population. By offering salaries that are the lowest in the metro 14 this will not happen. For the past 20 years the district has compensated REA members at rates below inflation. THIS MUST STOP HERE AND NOW!
This past Tuesday RSD and REA reached tentative agreement on Article #18, Student Discipline. REA was able to get improved language regarding behavior plans, safety protocols, and timely sharing of information with "need to know members" regarding students with emotional regulation issues. RSD was unwilling to add language regarding restorative justice practices, despite having spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars creating an RJ program and processes. :(
