  • District 6 contract negotiations continue today

    Posted by CASEY PEARSON on 1/17/2019

    The following is a joint statement from the Negotiations Team:

    Today, a team of educators from the Greeley Education Association, administrators and Board of Education members in Greeley-Evans School District 6 continued meeting to identify issues that need to be addressed by smaller work groups over the next few months.

    The group heard information about the early preliminary budget estimates from Chief Financial Officer Meggan Sponsler. This information also included anticipated expenses including the advancement of the salary schedule for educators as well as a similar increase for classified staff. Ms. Sponsler also provided estimates for what it would cost to address additional compensation issues, such as increasing base pay for teachers, addressing a previous issue from past contracts called the crossover key and compensating those employees who had their salary frozen back in the 2009-10 school year. A compensation committee will reconvene in February and as more information is available from the state about funding the School Finance Act, a compensation package will be brought back to the entire team, probably in April.
