JOINT STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF

THE NORTHERN HIGHLANDS EDUCATION ASSOCIATION

AND THE

NORTHERN HIGHLANDS REGIONAL BOARD OF EDUCATION

NEGOTIATIONS TEAMS

           

During this past year, the Board of Education and the Northern Highlands Education Association have been involved in negotiations for a new employment contract for our District’s staff members, including teachers, secretaries, paraprofessionals, custodial and maintenance staff and other support personnel.  During this process, the parties shared a goal of reaching an agreement that was as fair as possible to all involved stakeholders.

To that end, the Board of Education and the NHEA Negotiations Teams are pleased to announce that the parties recently met and reached an agreement for a new contract that will run from June 2018-June 2022.  Both the Board and Association are confident that the terms of the agreement will allow the District to fairly compensate its valued and essential staff members while maintaining the excellent programs and high-quality education provided to our students and also taking into consideration the needs of the District’s taxpayers. 

Both the Board and NHEA Negotiation Teams look forward to maintaining their open dialogue and continuing to work together to provide our students with the best education and support possible.
