    Posted by CASEY PEARSON at 5/3/2016

    Representatives from the Greeley Education Association and Greeley-Evans School District 6 administration are pleased to announce that a tentative agreement was reached on the master contract for 2016-17 in an all-day session Friday, April 29.

    With most of the Board of Education present, the group agreed to a compensation package that will honor the current teacher master contract, which includes a year of service step on the salary schedule for licensed employees; therefore, all District 6 employees will receive the equivalent of the year of service step which is 3.75 percent beginning in July. Licensed employees who qualify will receive additional compensation for completing education requirements for horizontal advancement. There will be no increase to the “base” of the salary schedules. The benefits package will be consistent with that provided in the current year.
