Collective Bargaining

Wages and working conditions are all negotiated through a  collective bargaining process.  The School Board and ACEA each have representatives who come together throughout the year to collectively bargain the terms of the two different contracts.  There is a contract for all instructional staff and another contract for non-instructional staff, or ESPs.   As new language is agreed to by the collective bargaining teams,  it is submitted to the School Board members and to members of the bargaining unit for ratification.
