Union update - March 1, 2017

Dear Colleagues:

Here is the link to Monday night's School Committee public forum meeting about our school budget that Vice President Mike Murphy and I spoke at in favor of the budget proposal brought forth to the committee by Superintendent Jacobs.

Also, GESA members spoke also at the meeting.

Also,  the school calendar was also discussed and accepted for next school year.  The School Committee voted to start school before Labor Day for school year 2017.  I am not sure yet when opening day for new hires, first day for all staff and first day for students will be, but my guess is Monday, August 28th will be the first day school for all staff.  As soon as something is finalized I will let you know.  Also, Yom Kippur, Friday September 29th will now be a 1/2 day for all students and staff.
