Centreville Public Schools Board of Education members recently approved a contract with the Centreville Education Association.
During its meeting March 28, the board agreed to terms of a one-year contract, which covers 47 staff members. Union members agreed to the contract during a vote March 25.
Interim superintendent Chad Brady said negotiations were resolved over the course of just three meetings. In the world of teacher-contract negotiations, he said three is “an incredibly few number of meetings.”
Brady explained that one adjustment centers on the district’s pay scale, which uses a step system based on experience, longevity with the district and position.
The adjustment involves removing the bottom two rungs of the scale. As a result, the district’s pay scale is restructured and, Brady indicated, could attract potential employees when the district begins its hiring process for the 2022-23 academic year.
