Member Sarah Jordan suggested that members let the administration know what they are hearing as to the concerns regarding the teachers contract. Members mentioned the following items:
Unequal sick time
Preparation time for elementary teachers
Personal Day – having to list the reason
Member Sherry Horeanopoulos expressed concern that the School Committee voted on a proposal by the Superintendent to present to the teachers and that the Committee was not given a true picture. Director Paul Soojian reported that the lack of a ratification vote is a union problem, the negotiating team for the WREA may not have had a good sense of their members’ issues but that the Superintendent absolutely presented accurately what was discussed at the table.
Member Jeffrey Wentzell left the meeting at 10:46 PM.
